All over the world, the fires are dying. The planet will become an icy wilderness. Mankind is threatened with extinction. At the heart of this plot lies Hera, Hercules' implacable enemy, who has taken the eternal Torch before it is extinguished. Many dangers lay in wait: an invincible giant, a treacherous wood sprite and the wrath and jealousy of his father, Zeus. This second of the series telefeatures, is another light hearted sword and sorcery ramp with special effects and New Zealand scenery making up for other weaknesses.
