When a wily, witty, lying, lazy, cheating slave discovers that his master's son is in love with the girl next door, a virgin courtesan, he promises to help win her heart in exchange for his freedom. But the road to romance is blocked with stunning surprises, cunning disguises and the wildest chariot race ever!
