You are invited to a dinner party hosted by a nice middle-aged lady who also happens to be an ancient magical creature from one of civilization’s oldest myths. In this vivid reimagining of the Beowulf story, Grendel’s mother has come to seek justice for her son’s murder at the hands of a brutal strongman, only to confront her own complicity in his death and the subsequent spread of authoritarianism.
