A storyboard of the second part of the Odyssey, an Epic supposedly by Homer. Odysseus returns home to Ithaca, only to find nothing but trouble. Suitors have invaded his house! Now, Odysseus must fight to protect his kingdom, and the woman he loves...
After a 20 year journey, Odysseus, alone, returns home to Ithaca.
Desperate Suitors have been harassing Odysseus's wife, Penelope for the years Odysseus has been gone. They are after his wealth and the throne of Ithaca.
Odysseus is not coming back. You will have to choose one of us to marry.
Suitors! Listen and Listen well!
Penelope devises a plan. She will hold a challenge for the suitors. The winner of the challenge will become her husband.
To win, you must successfully string my husband's bow, then fire an arrow perfectly through 12 axeheads. The suitor that succeeds this feat I will marry.
Athena disguised Odysseus as a beggar. Only his son, Telemachus, knows it's really Odysseus.
And apparently I can't do any more so the end...
Odysseus's old dog Argos recognized him too, but Argos passed away, seeing his master one last time.
