King Midas, old, tired, and worn out craves a change of life. He encounters Dionysus, lord of the vine, and by drinking a cup of elixir offered by Silenus, the drunken leader of Dionysus’ chorus, a spontaneous dance and rousing song inspires and transforms him into a darling young sexy stud. At the instigation of a theatrical producer, he runs to Athens to be the Poster Boy for a new play of the life of Dionysus and discovers the producers only want to exploit his natural sexual attribute.
