Under the rule of the Romans, a small set of early Christians must stay true to their belief no matter the cost would be. Anna, a young slave girl, is rescued and adopted by Christians in the 2nd Century Smyrna, and supported by their elderly bishop, Polycarp. As Anna is taught by Polycarp and her new family, she fights to reconcile her faith with those of the Christians. When the Roman proconsul demands that all citizens adore Caesar to show their allegiance to Rome, Polycarp and the Christians must find courage to stand for what they believe in against the growing threat of persecution. Anna is forced to come to grips with the truth and choose whom she is willing to live and die for.
"Polycarp issues a call that resonates with Joshua's mandate to 'choose you this day whom you will serve.' This is a moving story of second-century persecution, reminiscent of the persecution many believers face today."å?
