The story is told in four episodes: Jerusalem on the day of the Crucifixion; Antioch in the time of the first Crusade; Palermo, Sicily, in 920; and Seville in 1560 during the days of the Inquisition.

Peggy Ashcroft, Anne Grey, Marie Ney and Joan Maude play the leading feminine roles. The male cast includes: Basil Gill, Francis L. Sullivan, Felix Aylmer and John Stuart. Maurice Elvey directed the picture, which is released by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. Hugo Riesenfeld wrote the special musical score.
