Adonis, the most beautiful man in the world, is the product of an accursed, incest relationship. He is so beautiful that even the Goddess of Love falls desperately in love with him.
Besides her, all the other goddesses fall for him as well. They all want to have him.
Aphrodite, upon hearing that Adonis was set up and would be killed, tries to save him; but she can’t prevent his morbid fate from happening.
Her love dies in her arms. The white rose, the symbol of Aphrodite, turns red with Adonis’s blood.
Since that day, Adonis’s blood drips from the hands of everyone who tries to vulgarly have the rose, and there he comes to life.
