Description

Fated to be an exile, a hero must roam the world to follow his destiny. The city of Troy has fallen. Only a few of its citizens remain. The brave hero Aeneas must save his family and escape before the invading Greeks murder them all. But he is cursed by Juno, Queen of Heaven. Chasing him across the seas, the revenging goddess summons up every torment in her powers to destroy him. Can Aeneas survive to fulfil his destiny and create the proud city of Rome? Or will the charms of the beautiful Dido tempt him to abandon this great task?
