Zeus, Hera, and the Archetypal Battle of the Sexes

Four thousand years of philandering and there’s that cute little naiad he can’t forget. His neo-Olympian cult won’t stop howling at the moon. And Hera’s on a real rampage this time. Is Zeus out of his league? Let the Games begin!

Sometimes a fool’s errand is the only chance you get. With nothing left to lose, a bereaved fry-cook, a lovelorn hermit, a clueless delivery-boy, and a determined water nymph take on the gods. It’s a surprisingly fair fight.
