Everything Will Be Different tells the story of teenaged Charlotte, whose beautiful mother is dead, and in the midst of her own grief and her father’s unwillingness to cope, she turns to the story of Helen of Troy for comfort, convinced that beauty, desire and fame can help her bring her mother back and punish the world that took her away in the first place.
