The soldiers exit from the Trojan horse and enter the walls of Troy. After razing the city, Odysseus and his crew leave to go home back in Greece but on the way there he angers Zeus and his boat is struck by a lighting bolt. The boat goes off course and and lands in the land of the lotus eaters before leaving to travel back to greece. On their way they arrive at the island of the cyclops and kill his sheep. In order to escape the wrath of the cyclops they trick him and take out his eye. They use the bag of winds to attempt to reach greece but Odysseus uses them improperly and they go off course again.They then find Circe who turns most of the crew into pigs before the crew is able to escape. They then descend into the underworld and face the trials within before escaping and having to navigate the waters filled with sirens. They then go on to face Scylla a giant kraken and Charybdis a giant whirlpool. On his journey he kills a golden cow before finally returning to his home in greece. To prove his identity after many years away from his home he must shoot his bow through axe heads. Finally at home and able to rest knowing that his trials are over he is able to relax and eat a well deserved bowl of cereal.
