In ancient Greece, Paris sought the love of the most beautiful woman in the world, Helen. Their elopement to Troy resulted in the Trojan War, a tale that has inspired countless artists. Paride ed Elena tells the story of their first meeting to their flight from Sparta and centers on three characters: Paris, Helen, and Cupid who is instrumental in persuading Helen to choose love over duty. But when the Gods intervene in the lives of mortals, can there be a happy ending?
