The Trojan War leaves young Orestes a spiritual orphan. Agamemnon, his father, has been away fighting for nine years. Clytaemnestra, his mother, never wanted him. Now, crazed with grief over the murder of her daughter Iphigenia, she takes as a lover a rival kinsman whose presence threatens to tear the royal family of Mycenae apart.
When the war ends, and the unthinkable happens, Orestes must flee for his life. As an exile far from home, can he survive long enough to grow to manhood and reclaim his birthright?
