A down-to-earth account of the lives of both illustrious and ordinary Romans set in the last days of the Roman Republic.

The year is 44 B.C. Julius Caesar has been assassinated and civil war threatens to destroy the Republic.

In the void left by Caesar's demise, egos clash and numerous players jockey for position. Meanwhile, Titus Pullo attempts to pull his friend Lucius Vorenus out of the darkness that has engulfed his soul in the wake of personal tragedy.

Once again, the fates of these two mismatched soldiers seem inexorably tied to the fate of Rome itself.

The second season of HBO/BBC series ROME takes place in 44 BC, eight years after the period covered in the first season.

The show continues to revolve around the plight of two Roman soldiers, Lucius Vorenus and Titus Pullo, who find themselves caught up in a civil war after Caesar is assassinated.

As powerful leadership battles play out between historic figures such as Octavian and Marc Antony, Lucius's life is marred by personal misfortune.
