After ten blood-filled years, the war is over. Troy lies in smoking ruins as the
victorious Greeks fill their ships with the spoils of battle.
Alongside the treasures looted are the many Trojan women captured by the
Greeks – among them the legendary prophetess Cassandra, and her watchful
maid, Ritsa. Enslaved as concubine – war-wife – to King Agamemnon,
Cassandra is plagued by visions of his death – and her own – while Ritsa is
forced to bear witness to both Cassandra’s frenzies and the horrors to come.
Meanwhile, awaiting the fleet’s return is Queen Clytemnestra, vengeful wife of
Agamemnon. Heart-shattered by her husband’s choice to sacrifice their eldest
daughter to the gods in exchange for a fair wind to Troy, she has spent this long
decade plotting retribution, in a palace haunted by child-ghosts.
As one wife journeys toward the other, united by the vision of Agamemnon’s
death, one thing is certain: this long-awaited homecoming will change
everyone’s fates forever.
