Unaware of Guntras struggles, Jugurtha, her son, longs to lead his tribe against the hated Roman conquerors and drive them from the land. When Jugurtha encounters the Christian centurion, Marcinius, he scorns the idea of a God of love and kindness, certain that he has no use for such a God. There comes a day, however, when he is in dire need of help for himself and his beloved little sister, Norma, and it is Marcinius who comes to his aid. Through the kindness and humility shown by Marcinius, Norma, Jugurtha and even Guntra begin to be drawn to this God of love.
