Immer schon haben die Menschen Kriege geführt. Manche wollten Macht, manche Ruhm oder Ehre - andere wollten Liebe. Im alten Griechenland provoziert die Leidenschaft eines der legendärsten Liebespaare aller Zeiten jenen Krieg, der eine ganze Zivilisation in den Untergang stürzen wird: Paris, der Prinz von Troja, raubt Königin Helena ihrem Mann, dem König Menelaos von Sparta - eine Beleidigung, die der König nicht hinnehmen kann. Die Sippenehre gebietet: wenn Menelaos provoziert wird, trifft die Provokation auch seinen Bruder Agamemnon, den mächtigen König von Mykene, der alsbald die starken Stämme Griechenlands zusammenruft, um Helena seinerseits den Trojanern zu rauben und so die Ehre seines Bruders wiederherzustellen. In der von Mauern bewehrten Stadt Troja regiert König Priamos, verteidigt wird sie vom gewaltigen Prinz Hektor: diese Festung hat bisher allen feindlichen Angriffen widerstanden. Ob Troja siegt oder fällt, hängt nur von einem einzigen Mann ab: Achilles - er gilt als der größte Krieger seiner Zeit. Im Krieg um Ehre und Macht treffen zwei Welten aufeinander. Tausende werden dem Ruhm geopfert. Aus Liebe wird ein ganzes Volk vernichtet
