SCRIPT MOVIE: Fate’s Peculiar Sense of Humour, by N. Triton

In 2009 London, Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love and beauty, finally finds a person that could spell the end of her being trapped in the body of a dirty, ugly beggar, and get reunited with her long-lost love Ares, the god of war, who is now instigating violence and anarchy through social media. That person is Dr. Drake, a university teacher who lives with his mother, is disliked by his students and shies away from any form of physical contact with women. Can a person who has never experienced love actually bring this emotion of true love back to a world that has reached its apogee of cynicism?
