    When Salome's mother becomes involved with Antipas a high political official in ancient Rome Salome begins to see her mother for what she is a jealous and power hungry woman But after spending her whole life practically worshipping the ground Herodias walked on even thinking of them as sisters it is hard for Salome to accept But as Antipas's sights switch from mother to daughter there is no denying Herodias's cruelty to her Sal
