For millenia, Athena (Ciarra Carter) and Hermes (Dane Oliver) have walked the earth as superior beings, as Gods, considering the humans as mere playthings or maybe a distraction on a rainy day. However, recently when she witnessed Methuselah (Jean Charles), the oldest man alive, dying, Athena crossed paths with a mysterious woman, Mina (Rachel Thundat), who could somehow see her when she wasn't supposed to and who exuded some weird energy. Hermes then tracked her down and felt her essence as well, so the two of them corner Mina and try to force her true identity out of her - but Mina's just scared shitless, especially when the Gods teleport her from hither to tither, and even let her witness her own rather traumatic birth, and how it took several minutes before she started to breathe. However, while just a mere mortal, Mina isn't a woman without means, and she tries to make one escape after the next, and would have succeeded as well, if it wasn't for Athena and Hermes being, well, Gods ... even if Mina thinks they're just really good hypnotists. But as the Gods continue to play mindgames with her, something inside her awakens, something she has thus far never been aware of ...

The always dependable Eric Roberts makes an amusing guest appearance as God Poseidon.

 

A quite unusual movie, as on one hand it features all the usual genre tropes you'd come to expect from a film like this, on the other hand it tackles many a philosophical and religious question - and on the third hand it also contains plenty of quirky comedy, of all things. And somehow this weird blend comes across as an entertaining whole, thanks to a dynamic directorial effort, plenty of well-paced action, very nice effects work, and relatable performances ranging from the dead serious to the tongue in cheek. And the result is a very enjoyable cinematic trip through fantasy land.
