Emperor Antoninus has a secret.
He may be the merciless leader of the Roman Empire, but his humanity takes him underground (literally) by breaking the rules of a society he was born to uphold. Using cardboard and clay, this stop-motion animation video short tells a story from the Talmud of an unlikely friendship between this legendary ruthless emperor and a wise Rabbi.
Overtime their friendship develops into a brotherhood bond that carries Emperor Antonius and Rabbi Judah the Prince from young inexperienced leaders into elderly best friends.
