Summary

A modern-day tale of Greek mythological folly, this story follows the spoiled and vain Hera, who yearns for a family at any cost, as she pursues macho Zeus, still on the prowl in the 21st century. Meanwhile, Zeus, having given a family some cursory effort, is attempting to find himself in wine, women of all descriptions, and male rituals engaged in by his very own new age cult. Blind passion is truly a disaster when it involves the gods, leading to broken hearts, shattered dreams, and entomologically enhanced offspring. It is left to an unlikely band of mortals and one determined water nymph to somehow rein in the Olympian chaos.
