William Shakespeare’s epic tale of conspiracy, loyalty and betrayal.

Rome is destroyed, their world has crumbled, but life must go on. Survival drives people in a broken world, where friendships get brutally ripped apart. Caesar leads in the only way he knows how and stands firm in the belief of his leadership – others have different ideas and that’s where this classic tale steps up and attacks. Referencing gang culture and questioning the very heart of loyalty and friendship, this film is hard-hitting.

The world is Rome; the story is now; the brutality is soul-destroyingly real. In a dark world, where people are pushed beyond their limits, you find the rawest and darkest souls. Opinions are as divided as loyalties.
