A young woman disappears, the world is cast into a lethal winter, and everyone’s version of the story is a little different. In the face of trauma, Persephone struggles to make sense of her own experience. A story of sexual awakening, coming of age, and a fight for autonomy when Persephone’s caught between a mother and a husband who both seek to own her. (
