The White Goddess

The White Goddess

Rebecca hat sich in ein abgelegenes Chalet im Norden Kanadas zurückgezogen, um zu schreiben. Eines Tages stößt sie bei einem Spaziergang auf Andrew, der bewusstlos im Schnee liegt. Sie bringt ihn in die Hütte und kümmert sich um ihn. In kurzer Zeit lernen sie sich kennen und er lässt sich auf sie ein. Rebecca hat eine krankhafte Besessenheit von der Vorstellung einer mächtigen vorhellenischen Göttin entwickelt. Diese Besessenheit beginnt auf die Welt und den Mann überzugreifen, der nun unwissentlich in ihr Netz verstrickt ist.
