Plot – In ancient Greece, the love between Paris, Prince of Troy, and Helen, Queen of Sparta, has been the main cause of the war that, in literature, has destroyed an entire civilization. When Paris takes away Helen to her husband Menelaus, King of Sparta, he makes an intolerable affront to the entire family and to Menelaus' brother Agamemnon himself who, as the King of Mycenae, quickly gathers all the rulers of Greece to plan an offence against Paris. Agamemnon doesn't want only to defend the honor of his family but also he craves to satisfy his enormous greed, conquering Troy and later taking possession of the Aegean Sea to ensure the supremacy of his empire. Troy is ruled by Priam and is defended by Prince Hector, moreover it's surrounded by high walls and has never been conquered before. Agamemnon has to persuade the strongest warrior ever to join them, the only one who can conquer the city of Troy, Achilles.
