About this submission

Athens. 399 BC. The newly restored democracy is on shaky ground, the city is under threat from without and within. Talk of betrayal, revolution, and invasion pervade. The Democratic leaders request the help of old man Socrates, the so-called philosopher, but when he refuses they threaten to put him on trial for heresy and corruption. They believe they cannot lose the case, but in the trial, the old man turns the tables and puts the democracy itself on trial.
