The great Roman general, Titus Andronicus (Hopkins) returns home from 40 years at war with the Northern Goths where all but four of his sons died.
Titus decides to execute the eldest son of Tamora, Queen of the Goths (Lange), as part of a victory ritual (despite Tamoras pleas for her son's life). This act sets off a long chain of revenge, cruelty, and murder, which begins when Tamora marries the new spoiled and corrupt Emperor, Saturnius (Cummings).
