Synopsis

Peering down from their home on Mt. Olympus, the ancient Greek gods see a fast-paced, modern world filled with high-tech distractions. Who has the time to remember their stories? Calliope, the goddess of epic poetry, descends from the mountaintop to enlist the help of an 11-year-old mortal, Jason. But does Jason have the guts to overcome his stagefright and become the next bard?
