A young Englishman plots revenge against his mysterious, beautiful cousin, believing that she murdered his guardian. But his feelings become complicated as he finds himself falling under the beguiling spell of her charms
This retelling of Daphne Du Maurier's classic 1951 novel sees feelings of revenge held by a young Englishman become ever more complicated when hate turns to love.
Philip – a young English gent in his twenties – is mourning the death of his much-loved cousin Ambrose, his former guardian. Having moved to Italy in search of warmer climes, Ambrose succumbed to health problems while in the company of his new wife and Philip's cousin, Rachel. Convinced that Rachel murdered Ambrose to inherit his vast fortune, there's one thing Philip hasn't accounted for – the emotion of love.
Upon his and Rachel's next meeting, he succumbs to her charm. Were his suspicions of her murderous nature wrong and unfounded, or is she masquerading behind the guise of her own beauty? In a whirlwind of emotions, will Philip uncover the truth about his former guardian's passing, and if he indeed allows himself to fall for Rachel, will he ultimately end up being murdered next?
