At the end of the Trojan War, the Greek hero Ulysses can't cope with harshness, death and violence anymore - now he has only a desire: to come back home to Ithaca, to hug his wife and his dearest son.
A long journey back through a fantastic, arcaic Mediterranean, full of wonders and dangers, so insidious that every single step could be the last - but Ulysses, as a hero of atypical gernre, makes use of cunning and tricks as much as of his sword, facing every obstacle with the aid of his own courage, of his loyal companions and of the special protection of a certain Goddess...
Polyphemus the Cyclops, the fascinating sirens, Circe the sorceress and the God of Sea himself, the mighty Poseidon, are just some of the enemies opposing to our resourceful hero, who is still unaware of the terrible betrayal waiting in Ithaca...
Based on "My Name is Nobody" from the famous philosopher and popularizer Luciano De Crescenzo, "Ulysses" revisits and updates, with new characters, amazing sceneries and a bit of humor, one of the oldest and most famous stories in Greek mithology, an unsurpassed model for the "Adventure Tales".
Kinèo Award "Diamanti al Cinema" at the Venice International Film Festival 2012 in "Cartoon on the Bay" section as Best Animated Production.
