When the plucky, ambitious twelve-year-old Atalanta is excluded from the men's boar hunt, she is convinced that being female means giving up any chance at being heroic. But her mother comforts her with the stories of the Fates, the three goddesses who weave the destiny of all human beings. A skeptical Atalanta dozes off and drifts into a bizarre dream that carries her to the loom of the Fates, where she lives the stories of three great Greek heroines and discovers that heroism has more to do with the decisions we make than the fate we're born into.
