Ten years after the sack of Troy by the Greek army, Zeus is alone on Olympus, left alone in his palace by the other gods. His daughter Athena is the only one remaining at his side. She tries to convince her father to help Odysseus, the last Greek fighter who has not yet returned home to Ithaca.
There, his wife Penelope is under pressure from her Suitors, who dream of taking Odysseus’ throne. Aided by the goddess Athena, his son Telemachus decides to go to Sparta – the home of King Menelaus. As he got home from Troy several years ago already, he tells Telemachus about the death of his brother, the king of kings Agamemnon. But above all, he tells him of what he learned on his way back: Odysseus is still alive. Telemachus regains hope...
