Murder, sex, and black magic. In the seventeenth century, it took little for a woman to be feared, hated, branded a witch, and burnt at the stake. Raised in Tunisia, Pietra, the most feared woman in the region, was also the first person the townspeople turned to when they needed help. In this historical reconstruction, she must find the Genovese Patriarch’s missing guest: Master Rubens. Pietra must move in great secrecy and against the clock – she is not the only one looking for Master Rubens.

If I am still alive, it is only because I have learned to become a shadow by seeming vulnerable.
