Storyline

Odysseus, the king of the ancient Greek kingdom of Ithaca, is called to service in the Trojan War after the birth of his son Telemachus, much to the dismay of his wife Queen Penelope. Odysseus is worried that he may not return, and tells Penelope that she should remarry by the time Telemachus is a man if he does not return. The war lasts ten years, during which Greece's best soldier, Achilles, is killed and the Greeks avenge him by using a giant horse to sneak inside and destroy the city of Troy. Written by Moh X
