A loose adaptation of Homer's The Odyssey, this lyrical and expressionistic tale follows young refugee Anon as he journeys through America in search of his mother. Naomi Iizuka's Anon(ymous) interrogates a complex and challenging issue through a dreamlike lens, fantastical storytelling, and an epic quest for the best in humanity.

While immigration is one of the most polarizing political issues of the day, Iizuka's epic poem is as timeless as America itself.
