One man lives his life as a lowly beggar, but his luck changes when he helps a young prisoner escape a gruesome death in a sinking ship. From the bench of the destroyed ship, the first man carves a beggar's bowl which soon directs and changes the course of his life. Meanwhile, the prisoner goes on to become the most ruthless bandit in the empire, even while constantly being hunted by the ship's disfigured whip master. Meanwhile, a poor slum boy grows up to become a famous matinee idol. But he's plagued by a lifelong curse and every dog that comes near, despises and attacks him. Soon, the lives of all three will converge, in this tale of a beggar, a bandit and an actor, as one sets in motion the great fire that will burn Rome to the ground."
