The gods and goddesses of Olympus scheme as the ancient world is thrown into turmoil. Helen, a legendary beauty and wife of the Greek King, has been abducted by her Trojan lover. The jealousy of the Greek King flames into lethal vengeance as the Greks descend on the city of Troy aboard their black ships. In the siege that follows, history's greatest heroes - among them Ajax, Achilles, and Odysseus - are forged in combat, and the dark costs of passion, pride, and revenge must be paid. In the end, the whims of the gods, the cunning of the warriors, and a great wooden horse will decide who emerges victorious.
A vivid retelling of Homer's epic tale The Iliad.
