(mbc.net) In 117 AD the Roman empire stretches from Egypt to India and continues to grow, except in Northern Europe.  The Romans are facing tough opposition from the Picts, the indigenous people of Scotland who refuse to tolerate a foreign presence on their land.  In one battle the Picts annihilate an entire battalion, leaving a sole survivor: Quintus Dias (Michael Fassbender).

Dias is sent back to Scotland by his superiors, but the Picts' ruler, Gorlacon (Ulrich Thomsen) continues strengthening his people's mastery of guerilla warfare.  Will the largest empire in the world meet its defeat in a small European village?
