The Roman Empire stretches from Egypt to Spain, and go eastwards to the Black Sea. However, in northern Britain as a result of guerrilla tactics from the terrifying, savage and elusive Picts, the Roman advance as stopped.
Quintus Dias (Michael Fassbender), the lone survivor from a Pictish raid on a Roman fort on the frontier, is advancing forwards with General Virilus' (Dominic West) legendary 9th legion with orders to decimate the Picts and annihilate Gorlacon (Ulrich Thomsen), the Picts leader. The Picts know the terrain and succeed in ambushing the legion and securing the capture of Virilus.
Quintus is faced with a dilemma as his legion is depleting from the remorseless Pict incursions, yet he must somehow keep his men alive and rescue the General.
