Lavish TV miniseries charting the struggle for power in post-Caesar Rome. With the assassination of Julius Caesar by the ambitious Marc Anthony (Vincent Regan) fresh in his mind, Caesar's chosen heir, his 18 year-old nephew Octavius (Santiago Cabrera), is forced to flee the city to fight another day. As the years pass, Octavious is relentlessly trained by his trusted guardian Tyrannus (Jonathan Cake). Biding his time, he garners his forces around him, waiting for the moment when he can finally make his move and assume the position destiny has decreed for him.
