Set in 1923 Connecticut, A Moon for the Misbegotten explores the tormented and alcoholic James Tyrone, who finds solace one moonlit night in the healing arms of the shy, virginal Josie Hogan. Possessed by the memory of his dead mother and guilt ridden by his own blasphemous behaviour, the doomed Tyrone is the only man Josie will ever really know.
