Curiosity getting the best of him, Odysseus delves into the depths of the Underworld. He meets the souls of the Greek heroes who fought with him in the city of Troy. Agamemnon, first, who tells him about his terrible death.
Then the divine Achilles, whose exploits will be sung for a long time to come. But Achilles tells him that he regrets having died in glory, rather than living a peaceful existence. Odysseus, back on his boat, resents the gods for having condemned his brave companions to death. But he soon faces another danger: the Sirens. He covers his men's ears and asks them to tie him securely to the ship's mast, so that he can hear their infamous song. But for the fleet, it is out of the frying pan and into the fire: after the sirens are gone, they are faced with Charybdis and Scylla, two sea monsters ready to swallow them up...
