In 203 A.D. Carthage, North Africa, a young mother and new believer is imprisoned, charged with being a Christian, a traitor to the Roman gods. In order to gain her freedom, all Perpetua needs to do is offer a pinch of incense to the gods of Rome, just like every other good citizen. With this one simple act she will gain her freedom and return to a life of comfort.
As her father pleads with her to think of her baby and the family's good reputation, Perpetua rises to face the Roman proconsul. She has made her choice and there is no turning back. Watch as Perpetua's resolve is tested again and again by those opposed to her and the rest of the small group known as 'Christians.'
Torchlighters is a series of animated programs for kids, presenting the lives of true-life heroes from Christian history. When kids see what God can do through a 'Torchlighter' who is devoted to carrying out His will and purposes, they too may want to carry a torch of faith by serving Him.
