By Jupiter tells the story of a group of Greek warriors who are on a quest to seize the Sacred Girdle of Diana from the land of the Amazons. But what awaits them is not what they expect – here the roles are reversed, with women ruling and men tending to household duties. The Greeks find themselves entangled in tricky situations as they confront the unfamiliar dynamics. As the story unfolds through a series of amusing encounters, notions of gender equality and the battle of the sexes take center stage.
