This haunting real-life mystery story begins with a chance encounter in New York's Central Park between documentary filmmaker Michel Negroponte and Maggie, a beguiling homeless woman in her mid-forties. Or is it chance? For Maggie claims to have been expecting him for days. She also claims to be the wife of the god Jupiter and the daughter of the late Hollywood actor Robert Ryan. Her conversation is laced with psychic messages, bits of Greek mythology and other seemingly bizarre fictions. Struck by her humor and charisma, Negroponte visits Maggie regularly over the next two years with his S-VHS camcorder, determined to piece together the riddle of who she really is and how she came to her misfortune. Clue by clue, Maggie's enigma is deciphered and an astonishing story is revealed.
