Pandy is just like every other Greek girl. She has two best friends, a boy she likes, and a dad who gave fire to man. Okay, so the last one is not like everyone else. However, she can't use daddy Prometheus' liver (again) for the school's project: "The Enduring Presence of the Gods in Our Daily Life." She has to bring something really good this time or Tiresias the Younger will not notice her and the mean girls in her school will torment her even more. There is this one box she could use, but Dad said never, ever to open it. What harm could one little box do? From official release/information:
13-year-old Pandora Atheneus Andromaeche Helena (or Pandy, for short) has no idea what she'll bring for her school project. By accident she discovers a simple box, said to contain something so terrifying and horrible that no one must ever, ever touch it for fear of inflicting all of mankind with the wrath of the Gods and Goddesses. This, of course, makes the box the perfect thing for Pandora to bring for her school project. Unfortunately, things don't go quite the way she was hoping, and the box accidentally gets opened, unleashing all kinds of evil and misery into the world. Hauled before Zeus, Hera and the rest of immortals, Pandy's given the task of collecting all the evils within a year's time.
