Plot Summary

Julius Caesar has ascended to the highest echelon of the Roman Republic, but is she getting a little too enamored of her power? The lean and hungry Caius Cassius sure seems to think so, and with the help of one of Caesar's closest allies, Marcus Brutus, he hatches a plot to end the reign of the woman who would be king. But once Caesar is gone, who will fill the power vacuum? Who will the people follow? Who will hold Rome together as mutiny and war engulf the republic?
