After surviving a horrific assault by her husband, Helen uses the time of his incarceration to plan her revenge. She painstakingly rebuilds herself into the entity that will have the most power over him: a beautiful woman. A surrealist, modern take on the Gorgon myth and a cautionary tale about what happens when you suppress and disrespect the Divine Feminine.
