The young Secundus lives in a high mountainous valley with his family. Despite his name, he has Celtic origins. He dreams Rome, but his father just wants him to graze cattle and pray the ancient gods, as their ancestors always did. After the umpteenth row with his parents, Secundus borrows the horse of a friend and leaves the valley during the night to join Roman legions.
He returns home after 25 years, as a grown-up man, and finally understands that he needs to see his birthplace once again and acknowledge the traditions of his people if he wants to know who he is.
