A Roman General returns from a brutal ten year war to bury the sons he has lost in conflict. To honour their deaths he executes the eldest child of his enemies' Queen.
The end of the war and this final act of sacrifice is not the end of bloodshed. A chain of murder and retribution engulfs Rome as Titus struggles to escape the horror of violent deeds done in a violent world.
