The epic story, the greatest hero of them all.
Heracles, renowned for his strength and spirit, has done something terrible. His gilded life lies in ruins. Seeking the Oracle, he is given a new mission: pay penance by becoming the slave of his sworn enemy.
Twelve impossible labours await him. To restore his reputation, he must face monsters and mythical beasts that will test him to his limits and beyond. For he has become a pawn of Gods: of Zeus's pride and, above all, Hera's jealousy...
Can he fight back? Or even survive?
