Synopsis
Based on a true story, Henry Schliemann, a wealthy entrepreneur, embarks on a rocky, twenty-year, epic journey to discover the ancient city of Troy. He uses Homer’s Iliad as his guide and inspiration. But first, he marries Sophia Engastromenos, a Greek girl with a love for Homer. In his eyes, she is his Helen of Troy as he educates her to become an elite member of Parisian society. Their age difference, he forty seven and she seventeen, is a gulf he cannot bridge. Nevertheless, she becomes an equal partner. Overcoming skeptics, cynics, and scholars of ancient antiquities, he pours all his efforts and accumulated wealth into the quest. With the assistance of his undervalued partner, Frank Calvert knows the likely spot and points Schliemann on the right path. Schliemann, a Trump-like showman, and Calvert, an academic, clash throughout their involvement together on the best means to uncover the ancient city. Throughout their quest, significant figures from The Iliad appear – Achilles, Hector, Menelaus, King Priam and Helen herself – as ghosts that haunt and guide the three main characters as they pursue their search for the walls of Troy.
