Episode 2

The story of Magda Bescu is a dark, haunting tale...what lengths would a father go to save his beloved daughter?



Storyline

Three monsters stalk 1930s Berlin.

Reinhart Fohl is a senior clerk in Goebbels' propaganda ministry, who's recently made a dizzying discovery: the party gives its loyal servants so much support and so much latitude that he's functionally omnipotent.

Basilisks--reptilian in infancy, close to human in adulthood--turn to stone in their dotage. 'Welcome', a basilisk in its final sessile stage, has become an old patrician house, complete with portico and gables.

Immortal vampire child Magda Bescu has to live--and to feed--otherwise the tumor in her brain, which is every bit as immortal as she is, will eat more and more of the healthy tissue and leave a bigger hole in her sanity and her memories. And in this place and this time, Magda has one other pressing problem: racially, she belongs to the Roma, the gypsy peoples. The eugenics laws of inter-war Germany have effectively declared open season on anyone of her race.

Love it.  The best way to watch is to get that magnifier for the Text balloons.  I use one called "Magnfier" by Blacksun..  you can put the magnifier where you want.. shape it.. I put it at the top.  Bravo!  Love these.
