    To Live Forever


    Set in Los Angeles, To Live Forever is a modern adaptation of the Greek myth of Sybil the prophetess who sleeps with Apollo in exchange for eternal life. Sybil fails to heed the warnings of her sister Cassandra and the goddess Aphrodite who both do their best to protect her from Apollo’s charms – and her own folly. Eventually she realizes living forever isn’t all she had hoped it would be… but is it too late?
