A Queen masterminds the murder of her Husband and takes the throne with her new lover. Her Daughter, Electra, grows up in the grip of a cruel regime, swearing revenge. Her Son Orestes, exiled as a boy and raised in the arms of the rebels, waits to embark on a holy mission to reclaim his country. Two decades later a twist of fate brings Brother and Sister together; united by hate but divided by faith. With the country on the brink of civil war, the most powerful family in the Kingdom are torn apart from the inside as their dark past once again becomes the present. The revolution will be televised, but are The Gods watching?

THIS IS OUR YOUTH is a bittersweet portrait of Youth poised on the cusp of the scary, disillusioning path to adulthood. In Reagan Era New York City, three privileged Upper West Side kids – the swaggering, drug-dealing Dennis; his dispirited, free-thinking best friend and whipping boy, Warren; and confused, self-conscious fashion student Jessica – hang out, scheme for cash, challenge each other and make tentative steps toward authentic, vulnerable connection, all in a period of less than twenty-four hours in Dennis’ apartment.
