In the Third Century B.C., Cabiria is kidnapped by pirates during an eruption of Mt. Etna. She is sold as a slave in Carthage, and just as she is about to be sacrificed to the god Moloch, Cabiria is rescued by both Fulvio Axilla, a Roman noble, and his giant slave Maciste. Maciste is captured after having handed over Cabiria for safe keeping, while Fulvio Axilla manages to escape from Carthage.
