Storyline

AD 79:- In the Roman port of Ostia Flavia Gemina, daughter of a prosperous citizen, meets Jonathan, her Jewish next door neighbour. Later Flavia buys a personal slave, an African girl whom she calls Nubia and the trio travel to the outskirts of Pompeii to stay with Flavia's uncle Gaius, discovering a mute boy, Lupus, has stowed away on board the ship. They rescue Pliny the Elder, the Roman writer and naturalist from drowning, but, during the Feast of Vulcan, it becomes apparent to Flavia that the volcanic mountain Vesuvius is about to erupt and, although she and her friends escape, Pliny is killed on a rescue mission to save those living at the foot of the mountain.
