In the days of the Early Church, Perpetua, an affluent young mother, is charged with converting to Christianity and is sent to prison. But her freedom can be secured easily if she just shows her loyalty to Rome and offers one pinch of incense in honor to the Roman gods. As her father pleads for Perpetua to consider the welfare of her child and the reputation of their family, she slowly makes her way to face the Roman proconsul and declare her final decision. What will it be? Her life hangs in the balance in this inspiring true story of the Early Church.
