While traveling through a desert, Xena and Gabrielle stop in a village. They see that a girl is about to be whipped, and when they intervene, they’re surprised to see it’s Tara. The magistrate says that her crime is that she danced. So Xena and Gabrielle, with a little help from Autolycus and Tara, work to bring about changes in the village.
