Rome. 23 BCE. In the depths of serious illness, the Emperor Augustus is forced to rethink how he governs the city. He calls upon an unlikely helper, Lucius Sestius, one of those who fought against Augustus in the early. Once a Republican, he is now called upon to serve the Empire. To Lucius’ consternation, he is catapulted into office just at a time when a pestilence is sweeping through Italy. Thousands of people are dying and the River Tiber is rising. And to crown all, a conspiracy is forming, centered on Lucius’ friend Aulus and the respected Primus, hero of the war in Macedonia. The Emperor feels threatened and Lucius is expected to choose sides. Lucius tries to bury himself in private life once more, but when Aulus comes begging for help to escape Italy, Lucius cannot refuse. It is a mistake that brings the Emperor’s wrath down upon him and Lucius must pay a heavy price to redeem himself in the eyes of Augustus.
