Narrator: In 410 AD a rampaging army of marauders sacks the ancient city of Rome. It is one of the bloodiest assaults in Rome's history, a brutal violation of the mighty empire's capitol. In an orgy of murder and plunder, the civilized Romans fall under the swords of a violent band of barbarians. Barbarians bent on revenge. They are the Goths and their fury is fueled by decades of Roman treachery and abuse, a history of persecution and lies. The Goths rise at last against their oppressors, rallying on a mission of self preservation and conquest. Theirs is an epic story of barbarians pushed to the brink.
