The sleeping Ulysses
In 1801, five ships sailed to England from the harbour of Piraeus in Greece. Their cargoes were filled with statues, metopes, friezes and other pieces of art originating from the Parthenon in Athens. These 'Parthenon Marbles' are currently exhibited in the British Museum in London. For many years, the Greek people have waited in vain for the return of their stolen art, but now the wait is over. Aristos Brown, a self-made businessman, unexpectedly becomes involved in the battle for the return of the 'Parthenon Marbles' to Greece. Inspired by Homer and chased by the English secret service, he and his personal assistant Annie Steel take on the mission of recovering the stolen art. Their dangerous journey over Corfu, Peloponnesus and the island Ithaca ends in Athens. The possible return of the 'Parthenon Marbles' to Greece rests on their shoulders. What dangers will they encounter and is success even possible?
