In 43AD at the far edges of the Roman Empire Kerra (Reilly), daughter of the King of the Cantii, is forced to put her differences aside with arch-rival Queen Antedia (Wanamaker) to face the arrival of invaders.

The Romans, led by General Aulus Plautius (Morrissey), are determined to succeed where Julius Caesar failed and conquer this mythical land at the far edge of the Roman Empire. Aulus is a strong and resilient leader, but harbours a deep secret that threatens his mision. As tribes and Druids unite to fight the Romans, Kerra is thrust into the most important role of her life as she spearheads the resistance against the might of the Roman army.

Bonus features on the release are two featurettes – Rome’s Pagan Nightmare and Bloody Birth of Britain.
