work in progress
Ishtar developed itself from an exercise where Armine and scriptwriter Rodica Aldea thought of a story revolving around the idea of a character who is apparently scum of society and a plot twist that would reveal the same person as being a healer of the world.
Ishtar or Inanna theme appeared right away in the process of writing because of the reknown brothels working in Her name. Although Herodotus, the Greek historian, talks about the existing of sacred prostitution in the realm of Mesopotamia, historians are still debating the fact.
Armine and Rodica raise the question of sacred prostitution today. What if there are some women around the world, in this case, London, to be more specific, White City area, would hold this responsibility? Of mating for a higher purpose? What if these women are, in fact, priestesses who heal through sexual intercourse?
