Cecilia
By

Rating
Tells the story of a young girl's search to define herself in a world rife with social upheaval, religious conflict and deep foreboding. Cecilia, born into a noble Roman family in the second century AD, is 15 years old. But in a society that leaves little room for women to discover aptitudes, her search for knowledge, which she conducts with all the awkwardness and urgency of her age, is fraught with challenges. Grasping for light in an age of darkness and searching for answers among conflicting ideologies, Cecilia tells the story of a soul's progress.
