“Plato is a wrestling recruit at Athens University. He’s supposed to wrestle for them in the Olympics. They’ve given him a chariot to wrestle there, because he’s a big-time wrestler. He’s failing his philosophy class, Basic Thought, so his school hires Socrates, who’s a senior, to tutor him. Plato’s a little thick, so he ends up cheating, and they end up road-tripping to Mount Olympus so he can wrestle in the Olympics. The Greek gods Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades are all wrestling fans, and they’re betting on whether he’ll make it, so it’s kind of a big Greek epic.”
