In order to earn her stripes as a full-fledged deity, Polaris (a demi-goddess) must help Protagonis (the loser kid brother of Odysseus) understand the core social problems of Ancient Greek culture -- including lust, suicide, vengeance, and death by Clorox. With the help of a bunny-hopping Chorus, this fast-paced parody journeys from the divine halls of Mount Olympus, to the blood-soaked courts of Creon and Agamemnon, all the way to the Isolated Nether-Island of Infamous Evil Greek Women.
