Peter falls in love with Beverly Penn, a woman he meets while trying to escape from gangsters. Unfortunately, Beverly is dying of consumption, and Peter has been marked for death by the demon that raised him.
Though the plot might sound sad or dark at first, it’s actually very sweet and romantic. There are also plenty of magical elements that make it even more special.

There are a few sex scenes that you both may enjoy, as well as some nudity on the screen.

For Jonathan, it’s love at first sight, but Sara believes in destiny. Things get even more complicated when they realize that they both have their own plans for the future that don’t include each other. Will they be able to find their way back to each other? You’ll have to watch the movie to find out!
