Pseudolus whose only wish is to buy his freedom from his master’s parents, the henpecked Senex and his dominating wife Domina. When he finds out that his master, Senex’s handsome but dim son Hero, has fallen in love with Philia, a beautiful virgin courtesan from the house of procurer Marcus Lycus next door, Pseudolus makes a deal: he will get the girl for Hero in return for his freedom. Unfortunately, the virgin has been sold to the great Roman soldier, Captain Miles Gloriosus, who even now is on his way to claim her as his bride. Pseudolus blackmails his overseer, Hysterium into masquerading as the corpse of Philia to fool the captain, but things go wrong at every turn.
