Athens and Sparta are preparing for a long and epic war. As men go off to battle, Kalliope, a young maiden in the hunting band of the goddess Artemis, is enjoying an idyllic life in the wilderness. While she loves the excitement of the chase, she rankles under the vow of chastity Artemis requires. When she rebels against her vow with the satyr Demetrios, Artemis punishes them with an impossible quest: cross war-torn Greece to the annual Bacchanalia and fetch the pubic hairs of Bacchus himself! Two lovers drawn together in a moment of passion find they must rely on each other to survive. Can love bloom between a former maiden and a satyr?
