Director statement

“The concept for treating Sadie is poetic in its violence, psychology and eroticism, and through the discovery of pain and pleasure we discover truth. Applying these notions, we intend to take the audience on a journey through the psychology and morality of deviancy, discovering the fine line between our own desires, and their impact on our souls. The setting of an Italian country side casts an illusion, masking the mysterious world of secret societies, where passé ideas of right and wrong are replaced by the allure of the occult, and the carnal intrigue of murder. With each passing moment Sadie falls deeper into a world she once feared.”
