Summary
Paula Anton is a beautiful and trusting 19th century English singer studying in Italy. She is slowly being tormented by mysterious happenings in her luxurious Victorian home. The suspect is her devoted husband. But viewing the world through the dim glow of the gaslight, it is difficult to tell what is real and what is imagined
