Samantha Gwin never did listen to her father.
Now he's dead, . . .
. . . monsters act like humans,
. . . a hero reanimates as a boy toy,
. . . technology has a mind of its own,
. . . and all the girls at school are really, really mad.
it's all Sam's fault.
(Hey, a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.)

The themes in The Mighty Gwin revolve around archetypal behavior, female anger, the struggle for redemption, and the power of thought. Set in an average suburban town and high school, The Mighty Gwin explores the impact of social media on millennial culture through exaggerated, comedic interpretation by supernatural characters in a relatable environment. The challenges that Samantha Gwin faces reflect both the everyday experiences of young adults (bullying, shaming, etc) and the uncertainties of a larger, changing world.
