    • Synopsis
    • Socrates, which was considered the biggest thinker of Ancient Greece, sequesters a ship loaded with weapons as he tries to save the fragile peace between Sparta and Athens. However, because these weapons were aimed to help Sparta's enemies as a part of a covered Athenian military strategy, Socrates is mischievously accused of high treason and his political opponents ask for death penalty.
      Plato, the most important disciple of Socrates, turns against him too as a amorous dispute sparks between them when Socrates falls in love with Plato's darling.
      For the first time in his life, sentiments grow stronger than reason and Socrates' fate is sealed.
    • Partners & financing
