General Maximus' success in battle earns the favour of the Roman Empire's elderly Emperor at the expense of the Emperor's son. In a fit of jealous rage the son slays his father before turning his anger towards Maximus. Now reduced to a slave, and his family dead, Maximus must fight as a gladiator to gain his freedom – and his revenge.
