In a culture absorbed in decadence after the fall of the Roman Empire, Benedict leaves his school filled with immorality and debauchery against the wishes of his own father and his own desire to remain close to a woman he admires. His twin sister, Scholastica, empathizes and encourages him.

Shortly after, Benedict meets a monk who changes the course of his life. Benedict enters a monastery, where he is ridiculed and his life is threatened. Eventually, he leaves and founds his own order along with twelve monasteries throughout Italy.
