What is Gladiator II about?

Thanks to that Vanity Fair first-look article, in Gladiator 2, decades have passed, and Lucius has grown up far from his mother (Connie Nielsen). As a child, Lucilla sent him to Numidia, on Africa’s northern coast, just beyond Rome’s reach at that time. Lucius never fully understood her decision, and his resentment grew as he matured, despite her good intentions.
