Abstract:

The Double : Lisa is young, innocent and highly superstitious - she is also in love with Peter who is a smart computer whizz kid. They accidentally meet Zoe who is Lisa's 'double'. Whilst away for three weeks with her mother, Zoe seduces Peter and has him completely in her power. On Lisa's return she lures her away on the pretext of meeting Peter, who by now realises he really loves Lisa and that he has made a terrible mistake. But is the too late? Legend has it that if you meet your 'double' you will die within a lunar month. Of course this is just superstition - or is it - and Zoe, after all, is only human - or is she?

A Dark Blue Perfume : Haunted by his past, Mark returns to his hometown as a stranger hoping for a new beginning. However, he doesn't allow for Sheila who has not forgotten Mark and what made him leave his home originally. Mark desperately tries to oust the ghosts of that awful time but instead is continually haunted by them. Even his relationship with a new love is threatened by the memories of his ex wife. She had betrayed him and he had tried to make her pay for it. Now was his chance for a new life and to become at peace with himself. However, sooner or later you have to confront the things that you run from and for Mark and his new love, this confrontation will have tragic and horrifying consequences as he battles against his past to survive his present.
