In the caves of Olympus, the Moirae spin the strands of destiny while the gods play games with the lives of mortals.
When Zeus eyes the fair Leto, he takes her as his lover. She bears him the twins Apollo and Artemis, but her life is spent hiding from his jealous wife Hera, her heart longing to join the lover she can no longer have. As the twins age, Zeus gives them the gift of immortality, much to Hera's frustration. Artemis, who has never forgotten the heartache Zeus caused her mother, leaves thoughts of love behind to live a solitary life. Her brother, Apollo, however, longs to find the one love with which to spend eternity. Upon spying the beautiful nymph Daphne by a river, he is captivated. As his infatuation grows, he believes he has finally found the one. Unbeknownst to Apollo, there are other games at play and people on the fringes of his life have plans of their own. Their actions will be the catalyst to an outcome that will teach the gods that there are some things over which even they do not have domain.
