Lucia loves Edgard, the last heir of the house of Ravenswood, her family’s enemy clan. They are in danger, as Lucia’s dreams reveal: she sees a dead woman, and the fountain into which her corpse was thrown runs red as blood. Lucia, however, refuses to betray her love, not even when Edgard has to leave the country, she is confronted with false proof of his faithlessness and is urged to marry Lord Arthur for political reasons. Yet she signs the wedding contract – and suddenly Edgard is back and told to renounce his love. A ring falls to the floor, the nightmare begins – the nocturnal sky fills with lightning and thunder, madness and blood reign, there is a corpse, then another and yet another. What time may heal these wounds?
