The true story of the woman said to have inspired the Trojan War is explored in documentary filmmaker Bettany Hughes' detailed exploration of the remarkable life of Helen of Troy. Setting aside myth to explore the truth behind "the face that launched a thousand ships," Hughes explores both the life of the historical beauty as well as the manner in which the conflict that was fought in her name would have truly unfolded.
