Plot Summary: In 480 BC, King Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro) sends his massive Persian army in order to conquer all of Greece. Against insurmountable odds, Spartan King Leonidas (Gerard Butler) assembles his army of 300 courageous warriors to lead Greece in the defense of the country. Aided by his wife, Queen Gorgo (Lena Headey) Leonidas is able to inspire his men to walk into certain death. They will engage the Persians in battle at Thermopylae in a narrow canyon where the invaders cannot take full advantage of their army of hundreds of thousands. The mission proves to be suicidal after all, but it also proves to be devastating to the Persians and inspires the rest of Greece to band together and defeat the weakened enemy.
