Set against the ominous backdrop of 19th century Italy, REDEMPTIO weaves a tale of forbidden desires, hidden darkness and the delicate dance between life and death.
Born to Italian parents amidst the vibrant streets of Rio, Tommaso returns to his ancestral homeland at the age of thirty. Carrying with him a mysterious secret he dares not share, he has carved out a unique identity as both a skilled doctor and a photographer specialising in post-mortem images. These haunting portraits of the deceased are a testament to his unsettling connection to the realm between life and the unknown.
Francesca, a radiant and vivacious young woman, captures Tommaso’s heart with her beauty and intellect. Drawn to his enigmatic presence, she begs him to capture her image through his lens. But Tommaso resists, haunted by the darkness he carries, a burden that grows heavier with every fleeting moment he spends in her luminous presence.
Can darkness fear light, or will its fatal move consume it forever?
About the Author
C. A. Saltoris is a Brazilian journalist, actress and theater director, entrepreneur, founder of the YouTube channel Halls in The Forest – Rescuing Folk Tales, and author of fantastic and gothic stories that have something to say – and that she cheekily calls literature, in the sense of serious work. Although she prefers to write about witches and goblins rather than 21st century people who suffer the same things we suffer in our everyday lives. For that, she reads newspapers or calls a friend with a broken heart. Saltoris was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in the late 1980s. She lives with her husband and son in Berlin.
