Before the pantheon of gods, led by Zeus on Mount Olympus, there was the yawning void of Chaos. From this chaos there emerged Gaia, the Earth goddess. Gaia watches over Earth and with the passing of time becomes concerned. She fears that human beings have become greedy and destructive. She engages her chief of staff, Solon, to harvest teenagers from various places on Earth. They are to be subjected to ever increasing degrees of endurance. The survivors are then to be released in pods to save the Earth from a return to Chaos, but will any of them survive this Spartan existence?
