Jayne, a lifelong transient, is finally settling down in the small town of Sky, Minnesota, hoping to buy the building that hosts the town’s grocery store, which he manages. Margot, a girl of 14 ½, adopts him as her new companion and confidant. Not used to so much positive attention, Jayne finds himself charmed by her, and Todd, the local police chief, notices. As Jayne and Margot’s friendship grows, it becomes even more complicated when Caleb, a teen looking for the father he never knew, rolls into town and Jayne’s past may finally catch up to him.

Clytemnestra never launched a thousand ships, but that doesn't mean she couldn't have.

A darkly comedic, lyrical love letter to one of mythology's most misunderstood women.
