The Story of Saint Perpetua — It is the year AD 203 in Carthage, North Africa. Perpetua, an affluent young mother, is charged with converting to Christianity and is sent to prison.

With this simple act of devotion and loyalty to the Roman Empire Perpetua can regain her freedom and return to her son and a life of comfort. As Perpetua's father pleads for Perpetua to consider the welfare of her child and the reputation of their family, Perpetua slowly makes her way to face the Roman proconsul and declare her final decision.

The Story of Saint Augustine — Bright, young Augustine thinks his mother’s religion is foolishness. Convinced that his superior intellect will guide him, he sneaks away from home and ventures to a new life in the city of Rome. Soon Augustine finds himself in an important position as “The Voice of the Emperor,” with the life of luxury he’s always wanted. When the empire decides to take over the Christian basilica, Augustine prepares to give the speech of a lifetime, one that will slow the rising tide of Christianity’s influence. With his devout mother and the unwavering Bishop Ambrose on one side and the empire’s loyal soldiers on the other, Augustine must choose whom he will serve.
