Tito, emperor of Rome, is targeted by an assassination plot hatched by the ambitious Vitellia, the former emperor’s daughter who believes she should hold the throne herself. To achieve her purpose, she makes use of the love for her felt by Sesto, who is conflicted due to his close friendship with Tito. The emperor, torn between love and duty, must decide how to proceed.
