Jove yearns for ancient times when the gods and mankind worked together. Minerva remembers the past differently. She knows mortals are an ungrateful lot. Nevertheless Jove reaches out to a young man named Dennis. At first it seems Minerva was right. Dennis wears earbuds, and his music drowns Jove out until the god speaks through the music player.
Baldino updates ancient myth for modern readers.
