Striking Pandora is a contemporary tale of love, deception, and being ambushed by repressed memories.
Harrison, the head of a college English department, and his wife Pandora have a childless and loveless marriage. Harrison's true sexual identity is revealed when he falls for a fellow professor, while at the same time Pandora's past is brought to light when the professor brings an uninvited guest into their home. The strained relationships and emotions come to a head in a dramatic ending.
