“I stood there, blinded by the sight of you,
And when you’d gone the form of you
Emblazoned on my eyes.”
                                    —Love in the Wars

Penthesilea, Queen of the Amazons, sets eyes on the hero Achilles, and the ferocity of her passion collides with his stubborn will, setting in motion a tragicomedy of love and misunderstanding that threatens to derail the course of history.
