Thalia, Polly and Era are sisters.  They are being punished by their father for pulling a prank back home.  They are just not ordinary teenage girls and this is no ordinary punishment.  You see, the girls are actually Greek goddesses.  Their father is Zeus and he has banished them to Earth until they learn their lesson about how they treat others.  A slight miscalculation has really changed the plans though.  Instead of going to Ancient Athens, the girls have been banished to Athens, Georgia in 2001!  With no knowledge of modern day life, the girls find themselves in plenty of humorous situations.  But,  they get the feeling that someone is trying to get them.  Can it be possible that someone knows who they really are?  And why would they have it out for the girls?
