Based on the Universal film, this is a retelling of the classic tale of brotherly love. The Pythagorean Pythias is condemned to death for plotting against Dionysis I of Syracuse. When Damon pledges his own life should Pythias not return, Pythias is given leave to arrange his affairs. Despite many efforts to delay him, Pythias returns just in time to take his place for the execution, impressing Dionysis so much with the loyal friendship of the two that both are released.
