Vanessa is a young girl living on the streets of Rome. Based on the ancient myth of Atalanta, this contemporary rendition follows the life of young Vanessa as she grows up to become a maid.

While working for a wealthy family, she endures physical assault and mental abuse by her employer's sons, who see her as easy prey. Guided by the goddess Diana, Vanessa stops the vicious cycle by taking matters into her own hands.

Vanessa Atalanta Vol. I is the first in a three part modern-day-remake of the Atalanta myth.
