For twenty years, the great hero Odysseus struggles to return to Ithaka. After ten years beneath the walls of Troy, all he wants is to be reunited with his family. On his long journey back, he defeats monsters. He outsmarts the Cyclops. He battles the gods. He struggles to survive trials and tribulations to do whatever he can to finally reach home and those he left behind. Unsure of Odysseus’s health, they have despaired in the passing years.

Now, Argos has finally found a way to track his master. Any animal who sets foot or wing on Ithaka brings him news of Odysseus’s voyage and knowing he’s alive is both a gift and a burden.

All the while, he waits and watches for his master, ever loyal, knowing he must be ready for Odysseus to return.
