A new look on the poem "Christabel" (1816), by Samuel Taylor Coleridge. The only daughter of a rural worker, Christabel finds Geraldine, a mysterious woman, who says she's been attacked by men and needs help. Pure and innocent Christabel gives shelter to Geraldine at home. From then on, the two women relate to each other in a way that Geraldine has a great influence over Christabel, destabilizing her convictions and promoting tradition rupture, but that sparks a feeling of passion and freedom never experienced by the young girl before.
