In this epic origin story, the mythical Greek hero Hercules - the son of Zeus, a half-god, half-man is blessed with extraordinary strength. Betrayed by his stepfather, the King, and exiled and sold into slavery because of a forbidden love, Hercules must use his formidable powers to fight his way back to his rightful kingdom.
