Thetis is a Nereid, a minor female deity, living a quiet existence in her villa on the island of Lemnos. When a strange, wretched creature crash lands onto her shores, Thetis has a prophetic vision that the wretch’s life is inextricably connected to the fate of her prophesied son. Complicating matters, the Olympian gods Zeus and Hera have taken a strange interest in the creature, commanding her to kill it. Thetis must make a choice: trust her visions and care for the creature, or go against the will of the gods and decide to kill it. Throughout her journey, Thetis will discover the nature of the creature, how it has earned the animosity of the gods, and what the creature has to do with her unborn son.

Drawing on the myths of Homer, Ovid, and Apollonius Rhodius, "Thetis" brings the life of a background character into the foreground, and connects the seemingly disparate mentions of her life into a unified narrative.
