In accordance to her Christian background, Lygia remains a hostage of Rome, under the strict control of Emperor Nero (Klaus Maria Brandauer, Out Of Africa). Despite friend Petronius’ (Frederic Forrest, Apocalypse Now) valiant attempts to free Lygia from her fate, Nero remains staunchly opposed to any such fraternisation which may weaken his Empire.
But when Lygia is secretly taken into hiding by the Christians, Vinicius is forced to throw down his bias, follow his heart and journey beyond the realm of darkness to discover the infinite power of human compassion.
Also featuring Oscar®nominee Max von Sydow (Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close), QUO VADIS? is a sumptuously produced tale of forbidden romance set amidst the fiery spectacle of ancient Rome.
