In the early 20th century, a mysterious woman tutors a young girl in the arts of mind reading and clairvoyance. From the creator of The Control Group comes a story that is both a bittersweet coming-of-age story and a diabolical revenge thriller, bound together by cinematic sound design and an intoxicating tapestry of original and traditional music, providing a kaleidoscopic tour from street-corner medicine shows to vaudeville amusement halls of the era.
A mysterious woman retrieves a shy young girl from a bucolic convent school, and takes her on a tumultuous journey into the ominous Steel City.
Rose instructs Pearl in the basics of mentalism, and together they perform their act as a street-corner medicine show.
Rose introduces Pearl to the persuasive power of charismatic religion, when they attend the tent revival of Sister Evangeline.
Asleep in the Deep
Pearl finds success on the vaudeville stage, until a disruptive audience member attempts to derail her performance.
A chorus-girl is recruited to participate in Corbeau’s ritual; Rose deepens Pearl’s education through the help of a fortune-teller.
The Dragon's Breath
Rose uses sorcery to divine the identity of Albert’s secret benefactor, and to extract secrets from a vulnerable servant girl.
What happened to Pearls father? Rose said she would tell her that story later. Also, it would be nice to know what happens to the other characters like the doctor.
