In the year 218BC, legendary military leader Hannibal launched one of the most audacious military offensives ever, bringing Rome to its knees and almost changing the course of Western History. Driven by his fuel to fulfil his father’s legacy, Hannibal’s personal struggle took him on an epic journey, culminating in betrayal by his own people and ultimately taking his own life.
This drama-documentary reveals just how close Hannibal came to wiping out Rome and destroying the nascent Roman Empire. It follows his extraordinary journey across the Alps, battling not just against the terrain, but also bitter winter conditions, and marauding mountain tribesmen, whilst carefully nurturing his secret weapon – 38 battle elephants. Hannibal crushed every army Rome threw at him, culminating in the ‘perfect battle’ of Cannae where Hannibal was outnumbered 4 to 1. His perfect battle strategy would eventually be his downfall, as he was hunted by the enemy and abandoned by his own men.
Filmed on location in Tunisia (Carthage) and the Alps and using the latest research combined with cutting-edge visual effects, this film captures the remarkable story of one of the greatest military commanders of all time.
