“The saddest thing about betrayal is that it never comes from our enemies.”–Anonymous
In the Greek myth Iphigenia is the daughter of Agamemnon who is told by a goddess that he must sacrifice his daughter in order to be granted wind so that his ships can sail to Troy. Knowing that his wife would never agree, he tricks Iphigenia and her mother into coming to him by telling her that she is to marry the great hero, Achilles. This is a new telling of the old legend.
