Synopsis

This historical detective story leads us on an intriguing and visually spectacular journey to expose the true story of the soldier, robber, slave and gladiator who led the most memorable slave uprising of the Roman Republic. Beneath the legend, there lies the story of a man who was at turns both a great leader and a cruel one. A charismatic, mythical underdog and rebel - idolised by Marx.
