In ancient Britain, Mark Antony captures two men--Hengist Pod, an inventor working on a square wheel, and Horsa, a member of the Saxon underground movement--and takes them to Rome to be sold as slaves. Horsa escapes, but the weak Hengist is mistaken for a brave warrior and selected to be Caesar's bodyguard. Caesar dispatches Antony to Egypt to force Cleopatra from the throne and install Ptolemy. Antony and Cleopatra fall in love, however, and Antony disposes of Ptolemy before returning to Rome with plans to lure Caesar to Egypt and assassinate him. Hengist and Horsa clumsily contribute to the downfall of Antony's conspiracy and are rewarded with their freedom.
