The setting is just outside a city by the coast. The time is soon. Three sea nymphs (Hesione, Rhodos, and Admeta) emerge from the ocean and are greeted by Lyris, also a sea nymph, who has been living among the humans. All four are members of the Daughters of Ocean, a radical environmental party. Lyris bears the news that Prometheus, husband of Hesione, is imprisoned in the National TV Studio; robotic eagles are pecking out his liver, and his torture is to be broadcast to every screen on every device throughout the country. Horrified, Hesione plans a rescue. But Rhodos protests. Humans are despoiling the earth and the sea. If their rule is not overthrown, all are doomed. Wouldn’t The Resistance be better served by the martyrdom of Prometheus than by his escape? The Daughters must decide what sacrifices are worth making for their cause.
