A young slave girl, Anna, is rescued and adopted by Christians in 2nd Century Smyrna and befriended by their aged bishop, Polycarp. As Anna is taught by Polycarp and her new family, she struggles to reconcile her beliefs with those of the Christians. When the Roman proconsul demands that all citizens worship Caesar to show their allegiance to Rome, Polycarp and the Christians must find courage to stand for their faith against the growing threat of persecution. Anna is forced to come to grips with the truth and choose whom she is willing to live-and die-for.Written by
According to "Patrology" by Johannes Quasten, (Christian Classics, 1950), the letter from the Smyrna Church to the Christians in Philomelium is the oldest detailed account extant of the martyrdom of a single individual. Thus, it is often regarded as the first "Acts of the Martyrs." See more »

like many other religious films, it could be easy criticized. for the Christian public , it is not the most inspired adaptation of the life of Saint Ierarch Polycarp because he is presented only as one from the first martyrs of Church. but it is obvious to be only a sketch. not bad because the young Anna is the inspired character for present the work, the faith, the words of a great saint from the East. at large view, it is a good work. relevant parts from biography are presented. the atmosphere, in many scenes against the clichés, is represented in right manner, the cast does a decent job. as each sketch, it suggest more than present. and that fact, the air of adaptations without great ambitions, the feeling - the target is precise - the Christians for who the life of Saint Polycarp is well known, the film representing a remind's support are pieces who transforms the film in interesting project.
