A great story
4 May 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Through the actions of a fellow scientist, Norman, a model and her photographer travel back in time to the Roman Empire under Nero. The trio arrive in the Swiss Alps and are soon captured by a local tribe. They start a revolution and are quickly running the village. When Nero finds out - he sends a Legion to to put down the rebellion. Once the Romans arrive, things really hot up. How will the tiny village defend themselves against the strength of Rome's finest. But then, the Romans have never encountered Norman before. And how will the trio ever get back to their own time? This is a great story, well acted and with the music of Roy Oberson, makes it perfect.
