“THE MORE WE DO TO YOU, THE LESS YOU SEEM TO BELIEVE WE ARE DOING IT.”

SYNOPSIS

Violetta is one of London’s wealthy elite, rich and beautiful but pathologically dissatisfied with life. When her mind starts to destroy her body, she finds help in Dr. Gunter Berezovsky, a brilliant blood specialist and cultured psychopath who treats the city’s super-rich. As they become closer, a disturbing game plays out between them; one that will show her the truth about herself, and the society she inhabits. What she learns will change her forever.
