Olympus to Venice Beach, California in 1980 on a quest to inspire a struggling artist, Sonny. The goal – to achieve the greatest artistic creation of all time – the first ROLLER DISCO…hey, it’s 1980! But when Kira falls into forbidden love with the mortal Sonny, her jealous sisters take advantage of the situation and chaos abounds.
