The Trojan War has begun. Odysseus has gone to serve in the conflict, leaving his wife, Penelope, and son, Telemachus, to maintain the kingdom of Ithaca in his absence. Enduring struggles from without and within, the two find their greatest challenge in coping without their beloved king. When the war ends and Odysseus fails to return, Penelope, Telemachus and the dwindling number of citizens loyal to them face new trials as suitors arrive every day with aspirations for the throne.
