Androcles and the Lion
When the timid Androcles stumbles across an angry lion, he cleverly spots a sharp thorn in the animal's paw that must be the cause of the beast's bad mood. Androcles removes the thorn and the two depart the best of friends, never expecting to see each other again. But the Roman Gladiators need captive humans and animals for their favourite holiday game - throwing Christians to the lions...Poor Androcles and his new friend are captured and forced to become the latest unwilling contestants!
