Desperate to save her dying brother, Admete persuades her father, the king of Tiryns, to let her join Hercules on one of his legendary twelve labours. Travelling to the renowned female warrior Amazons in search of a cure, Admete soon discovers that both Hercules and the fearsome Amazons are not as they first seemed. The Amazons greet the arrival of the Greeks with mixed feelings - and none more so than Hippolyta, the revered queen of the tribe. For Hercules and his band of fighters pose a threat to her way of life - but also stir up painful memories that threaten to expose her deepest secret. As battle lines are drawn between the Greeks and the Amazons, both women soon learn the inevitable truth - in war, sacrifices must be made; especially if they are to protect the ones they love most.
