Spending the school year at their Nonna Sofia's house while their parents were away seems like business as usual for Tony and his annoying older sister Bianca - until they notice something strange about their 'Uncle' Leo. Like that he wears a lion's head cape as part of his professional wrestling costume, he has a girlfriend named Diana, and that he's as strong as an ox. It doesn't take long before they begin to wonder if Leo is even their uncle at all. When Tony's friend Hannah shows them the Modern Gods website, everything begins to make sense. But before they can confront Leo about what's really going on, an evil old woman named Hera shows up at one of Leo's wrestling matches and transports him into the world of ancient mythology, accidentally bringing Tony along for the ride. In order to escape, Tony and Leo must fight their way through to the end of the ancient stories, with Leo playing the role of Hercules and Tony as Iolaus. But Tony had better be careful, because in Hera's mythical world he can end up just as dead as he can in the real one.
