There’s a wolf tooth growin in me heart and it’s turnin me from everywan and everythin I am.

The story: It’s Portia Coughlan’s thirtieth birthday. It is also the fifteenth anniversary of the death of her twin brother, Gabriel. Can she untether her soul from her dead twin and live in the real world, or will she surrender to her grief and reunite with her brother? On this fateful day can Portia Coughlan change her story? Or was it ever her story to begin with?

Portia Coughlan is a profound and disturbing story about love and kinship, examining how the history of the family is the history of a nation.
