On a starry mountaintop, three sisters -- goddesses known as the Fates -- spin, measure, and snip the strings of life for every human on earth. After angering Zeus, they find themselves banished to a modern office building in the mortal world, where they continue their work hidden among the mortals whose destinies they weave. When the eldest sister meets a security guard in the building and falls in love, she bends the rules of Fate to keep him at her side -- but can the fabric of the Universe stand a flaw? An original musical about fate, love, and the imperfections that make us human.
