Set on the grounds of a preserved Roman hippodrome, a group of performing legionnaires, gladiators and charioteers try to hang on to Jordan's ancient past.  Jerash is ancient Gerasa, a prosperous city of the Roman Empire.  But as tourism continues to decline in the Middle East, the performers are faced with the harsh reality that each show may be their last.  The documentary short “The Battle of Jerash” takes you for a bizarre ride in a place you never thought would feel the effects of its tumultuous region.
