It comes down to this: three versus three hundred at the border of Sparta. The men who'd keep them slaves versus the three who would be free. The historical epic reaches its bloody denouement. The end of a story, the start of a legend.
The three helot slaves desperate to escape from the repressive Spartan regime find themselves cornered on the border...but not by the pursuer they expected. Trapped and running out of options, they know the Spartan army is marching closer. They can't hide. They can't run. Are they seriously going to fight?
