Writers Retreat

de Diego Rocha


“Write about what you know” is Mark Twain’s famous quote that Zandra, a successful novelist, holds as an incorruptible principle. To get documentation for her next best seller, Zandra decides to retire to a practically deserted island where a series of bizarre characters explain their darkest secrets to her. Everything starts to get complicated when one of them disappears.


Diego Rocha
