Circa 460 A.D. Mira was born in a warrior-family in Kerala, India, was well versed in martial arts and self-defense, so much so that she was recruited by the Spanish royalty and re-located to Constantinople. From there she was instructed to assist Roman Commander Aurelius to plan the escape of 12-year old Romulus Augustus Caesar from a prison in Capri after his parents had been killed by the leader of the Alliance in turmoil-stricken Rome that has seen the deaths of five emperors in five years. Mira, Aurelius, and a Priest, Ambrosinius, along with a handful of loyal soldiers were successful in the escape plan and deliver Romulus to Roman Senator Nestor.

The movie starts with an interesting theme, but quickly turns into one cliché after another.I liked how they linked the Arthurian legend to the line of Caesar. How ever the Standard group setting in Sword and Sorceror movies soon kicked in. Complete with the girl pretending to be a man, the Black guy(unexplained) in the middle of a foreign country, the battle weary soldier, the wise-old man and the child they must all protect. The acting by the Goths was laughable as well as the main villain. It's like they took a movie written for children and tried to add violence at the last minute. I say it was a waste of time and a disappointment
