Crown of Shadows: the wake of Odysseus

Synopsis:
Penelope and her teenage son Telemachus struggle to maintain control on Ithaca while waiting for Odysseus to return. As Penelope navigates the political waters of countless suitors, Telemachus, in his turbulent youth, chafes against both the bombardment of potential usurpers and his father's legacy. With pressure for a successor mounting, they battle two outsiders for control over the island, with a shocking ending that can't be found in Homer's saga.
