Storyboard Text

  • Imagine a mountain so tall no man or woman has ever seen its summit. Imagine the home of the mighty gods and goddesses. Imagine Mount Olympus.
  • On top of Mount Olympus there was a throne. Upon the throne would sit father god Zeus, the cloud-compeller, whose temple is the sky. From that throne Zeus could see everything.
  • One time Zeus looked down and he saw a little island in the blue Aegean Sea. And riding a dolphin, as though it was a pony, through the shallows towards that island, he saw a nymph, a magic woman.
  • She stepped from the back of the dolphin. She waded up the shallows, she lay on her belly in the sand and she fell asleep.
  • Poseidon laughed. "This is Thetis. Surely you know of her? Surely you know of the prophecy that hovers over her?
  • Zeus was filled with desire for her. He called his brother, the god of the sea, Poseidon.
  • Hesaid, "Who is she?"
  • They say one day she will have a son and the son will grow up to be greater than his father. If I were you, I wouldn't pay her one of your visits."
