"You think I killed him. In your eyes, I can see it. I'll tell you how it was, come closer."

Two brides and one dead groom. Blood-soaked and ferocious, neither one will betray who killed him.

A bold reworking of Jean Racine’s Andromaque, this is an epic tale of savage courtship that questions the animal nature of human passion.
