Year 31 Before Christ. Manio Sempronio, a wealthy patrician, accidentally kills a senator and is condemned to death. Unable to end his own life, he asks to commute his sentence for anything.

“Amazingly entertaining, wacky and dynamic - with shades of black comedy. A great parody full of satire, with a fair dose of surrealism.”

Mario Cerdeñoeldiario.es

“This humour reminds you of similar scenes in your daily life. Its success stems from its connection to everyday life.”

M. MéndezVertele

“It was high time that we saw Romans dealing with everyday situations, this is hilarious!”
