Plot Summary
The Greek fleet assembles at the bay of Aulis in readiness to launch an
attack on Troy, but the wind suddenly drops and the ships stand idle.
The army blames its leader, Agamemnon. In danger of losing his command,
he is presented with a solution: to sacrifice his daughter Iphigenia to
the gods, in return for a favourable wind. Just how far will the leader
go in order to save face and secure a military victory in the East?
