When Oedipus's sons kill one another in a bitter fight for the throne, Creon (Manos Katrakis) assumes the role of King of Thebes. But when the deceased men's sister, Antigone (Irene Papas), goes against the wishes of the new king and properly buries her dead brothers, the king orders Antigone to be buried alive in a tomb. Will she be able to escape alive?
