Otis Chambers is a struggling writer with a two book deal on his desk. He desperately needs some help with writer's block, so he goes to Greece, the wellspring of inspiration. There, he finds a statue of Orpheus, the Greek demigod who'd charmed women and nymphs, even the gods and rocks, with his music and songs. Being that he'd also taught an entire civilization to write, there could be no better inspiration for Otis, but touching the statue lands him in the hospital, and when he wakes up, he finds his ex-wife, Emily, at his bedside, a flame that had never gone out. When he gets back to writing, he soon learns his words carry the power of Orpheus over women who read his books, which he uses to boost his career...and his sex life. His harem and fame grow exponentially, but Emily is unaffected by his newfound charms. As he juggles his fan girls and tries to win Emily back, he learns too late how all Greek tragedies must end.
