Synopsis: When a melancholy writer loses his wife to a vicious plague, an unexpected visit from a spirit from his past forces him to come to terms with his own mortality.
Rowena – Mid-late 30’s, any ethnicity. Commanding presence and lovely in her own right. Current wife of Graham, a struggling author. She is headstrong and jealous in nature, unafraid to voice her true feelings of her husband. Dealing with a strange illness, rendering her weak but doesn’t let her condition get in the way of a good party and a good drink.
Ligeia – Mid-late 20’s, any ethnicity. The former wife of Graham. Extremely beautiful. She was the essence of childlike wonder and joy when she was alive. A student and admirer of poetry and the arts, just like her husband. She died unexpectedly many years ago by a strange illness. Has she come back from the dead or is she merely an illusion of Grahams mind?
