Percy Jackson (Walker Scobell) is just a regular 12-year-old boy when he starts seeing gods and monsters everywhere he looks. Soon he learns that he’s actually a demigod and he must go on a quest to find Zeus’ lost lightning bolt, accompanied by his friends Grover, a faun (Aryan Simhadri) and Annabeth (Leah Sava Jeffries).
