Marcus is lost in an incomprehensible world...
Seized from his home and condemned on false charges, Marcus cheats a gladiator's death in the Colosseum and flees to the Forum temples. His prayers to be taken away from the barbarous time of Ancient Rome are answered, and he's transported to 21st century Australia.
Marcus is lost in a harsh land, amid strange people and incomprehensible machines. In an outback town he meets Sabina, who pities the odd man who has never driven a car or used a mobile phone. She teaches him to survive in the modern world and they fall for each other.
Desperate to return to his family, Marcus embarks on a perilous journey to return home, to his time.
