During the Roman Empire, the wicked and crass Crassius (Patrick Bergin) rules his small province with an iron hand and a sharp sword. The only resistance in his domain is a tribe of women skilled in the martial arts -- Amazons -- who regularly whip Crassius' gladiators in defense of their freedom. One Amazon in particular -- the outrageously beautiful former slave dancer Serena (Nichole Hiltz) -- is bent on revenge, seeing how Crassius was responsible for the brutal death of her mother, the destruction of her childhood village, her enslavement, and the death of her boyfriend Lucius (Richard Norton). It all comes down to a no-holds-barred clash of Amazons and gladiators in a packed arena, with Serena and Crassius headlining the bout.
