Disloyalty and betrayal are Damian Banks’ greatest subjects, and The Pilot & The Paramour is no different. Robert, a teenage boy who is as intelligent as he is cynical, helps his mother uncover a family secret that inevitably leads to a divorce. As he wades through uncharted water, Robert struggles to accept his new family dynamic, constantly varying settings, and ever-changing emotions. Robert’s father, Christopher, finds himself caught in a web of lies that inevitably lead to his demise. Ultimately, it isn’t the fact that Christopher is seeing someone else that is problematic, but rather his relation to her.
