    • Synopsis
    • In the Caribbean city of Santa Marta, actress-singer Clara Militch, a 20 year old Russian émigré, becomes obsessed at first sight with shy introvert Jake Lewton, 19, a shaken young man who has joined his aunt Diana in the island following his mother’s suicide. Clara’s pursuit of Jake shows reckless disregard for the consequences upon her older lover and protector, Raoul Santoni, who has ties of his own with Diana and Jake’s late father.
      Frightened by Clara’s passion and the turmoil she wreaks in him, Jake rejects her. Shockingly, Clara kills herself while performing on stage. Upon learning of her suicide, Jake is driven to decipher what drove Clara to her death. He meets with Anna, Clara’s much older sister, and learns of the relationship both sisters had with Santoni, and of a terrible family secret.
      Feeling haunted by her ghost, Jake confirms that Clara killed herself because of his rejection. He realizes that Clara hopes to achieve in death what she couldn’t in life: his love for her. Diana calls on the forces of santería to fend off the possessive ghost, but to no avail.
      Clara’s love is stronger than death.
