Desolation and despair reign supreme in the kingdom of Mycenae. The great Agamemnon has been brutally murdered; his son Orestes has fled and his daughter Electra has been imprisoned within the walls of the castle. All hope seems lost until the sacred oracle speaks and replaces Electra's broken spirit with an unquenchable desire for justice and bloody vengeance.
