Summary

Troy has been taken from Homer's sprawling tale of love and war in ancient Greece.
In 1193 B.C., Paris, Prince of Troy, has fallen in love with Helen, Queen of Sparta, who is wed o King Menelaus; Paris steals her away from Sparta. Menelaus' brother Agamemnon, King of the Mycenaeans, is eager to expand his empire through Troy to the lands of the Aegean Sea, and he uses Paris' romantic slight against Menelaus as an excuse to take part to the war. Priam, King of Troy, summons his armies, led by Prince Hector, but Agamemnon has a formidable ally, Achilles, a mighty and seemingly unstoppable warrior. Spartans will be able to win the war with a brilliant idea of Odysseus to build a big wooden horse, hide some men into it and convince the Trojans to bring it into the city as a gods offer.
