Xena has returned to the ruins of Cirra, the place that was once home to Callisto. She is hoping to understand how she became an evil warlord. Gabrielle is kidnapped while she waits for Xena, by a tribe that plans on sacrificing her along with other people that they have captured. During her rescue attempt, Xena is seriously injured. One of the savages tries to kill her while she is down. Gabrielle manages to stop him, but not without being injured herself. Slipping into unconciousness, Xena begans to relive her life from ten years before. At the time she was a pirate with her own ship, and Julius Caesar was her prisoner. Also on board is a stowaway with remarkable skills.
