ANTIGONE

$23.99

Antigone has always been a respected member of her community but in civil war all bets are off. She suddenly finds herself on the outside looking in. Everyone has a right to bury their dead. Everyone has a right to give their loved ones a dignified resting place. Yet when the community leaders decide that they need to set an example, they deny Antigone her right to mourn. Faced with the prospect of unresolved grief, she rebels against everything she knows.
