Frank the Bastard
Still reeling from a divorce and the death of her father, Clair needs a change. Her best friend suggests they drive up the coast of Maine to the remote northern region where Claire spent her early childhood. Clair left when she was six, after the death of her mother in a fire, and hasn't returned since. Arriving in the quaint but run-down seaside town of Edgeport, dominated by the powerful Cyrus Gast who proposes to re-develop the area. Clair meets some locals who once lived on a nearby commune with her parents in the '70s. She's surprised to learn that her father never told her about her 90-year-old great Aunt Dora who lives on nearby farm. Over the next 48 hours, Clair deals with an increasingly dangerous present while delving into the past, and faces a toxic legacy that has been buried beneath the town for decades. She also has a series of strange encounters with the enigmatic Frank, Cyrus' bastard son, who becomes her only ally in a battle to redeem the crimes of the past and protect their future.
