SYNOPSIS
Alice, a Professor of Comparative Religion, is writing a book exalting the ancient values of pre-Hellenic goddess mythologies. One day she meets Jane, an enigmatic older woman who roams the university campus, sleeps under a bridge, and rattles her with disturbing insights. "The Book of Jane" is an urban fable of Feminine initiation where three women are bound together to advance the values of an ancient culture but at a deep cost no one expected.
