“Chloe in Bloom” takes on the myth of Apollo, Eros and Daphne. Daphne doesn’t feel love the way her father thinks she should and wants to escape Apollo’s grasp. In this modern retelling, Chloe steps into the role of Daphne who cares much more about her high school track career and getting to graduation than prom and getting a boyfriend like her father wants her to. He thinks she’s missing out on a “typical” high school life, but she has a secret she’s afraid he won’t understand. Is keeping the secret worse than taking the risk and sharing it with those she loves?
