Judah Ben-Hur lives as a wealthy Jewish prince and merchant in Jerusalem at the beginning of the 1st century. With the new governor, his old friend Messala arrives as commanding officer of the Roman legions. At first, they are happy to meet after a long time, but their different political views separate them. During the welcome parade, a roof tile falls from Judah’s house and injures the governor. Although Messala knows they are not guilty, he sends Judah to the galleys and throws his mother and sister into prison. But Judah swears to come back and take revenge.
