It is the year 1250 B.C. during the late Period of time. Two emerging nations begin to clash after Paris, the Trojan prince, convinces Helen, Queen of Sparta, to leave her husband Menelaus, and sail with him back to Troy. After Menelaus discovers that his wife was taken by the Trojans, he asks his brother Agamemnon to help him get her back. Agamemnon sees this as a chance for power. So they take off with 1,000 ships holding 50,000 Greeks to Troy. With the help of Achilles, the Greeks are able to fight the never earlier defeated Trojans. But they come to a stop by Hector, Prince of Troy. The entire movie shows their battle struggles, and the foreshadowing of fate in this remake by Wolfgang Petersen of Homer's "The Iliad."
