“Ladies, gentlemen, gods and mortals, the captain has turned on the fasten seat belt sign. If you haven’t already done so, cabin crew will be sacrificing a passenger shortly to ensure a fair wind.

Mari is trying to make sense of her life when a centaur, Medea, and a dead Italian film-maker turn up and take her on a trip to Delphi, a journey to the Oracle. In this touching and absurdly funny tale, the pilgrims encounter the usual – and not so usual – tribulations of travel in their search for meaning; the ancient and the modern, the sacred and the mundane, the real and the fictional.
“…for mythical people are realistic and realistic people are mythical…”
