The daughter of a German mother, and black French soldier, Ingrid has been ostracised all of her life. The rise of Hitler and his barbaric racial cleansing policies has intensified the hatred and prejudice to a frightening new level. When Ingrid is identified as an ”undesirable” she is sent to Hadamar – an institution the locals call “The House of Shudders”. There she discovers how far the Nazis will go to rid the Reich from those considered unworthy of living. Desperate to survive and protect others around her, Ingrid seeks the help of a charming Aryan doctor. Can he be her protector? Or will Johan, a wounded German soldier she is starting to have feelings for be her only source of hope? Inspired by true events, this is the powerful story of a young woman’s quest to overcome hatred and survive.

In the lush, tropical world of Martinique where slavery is a distant memory and voodoo holds sway, Emilie Dujon discovers that her fiancé, a rich sugar planter, is unfaithful. Desperate to leave him, she elicits the aid of a voodoo witch doctor and is lured into a shadowy world of black magic and extortion. When the volcano known as Mount Pelée begins to rumble and spew ash, she joins a scientific committee sent to investigate the crater. During the journey she meets Lt. Denis Rémy, an army officer with a mysterious past with whom she forms an unlikely attachment.

During the journey, the committee discovers that Mount Pelée is on the verge of eruption. When they try to warn the governor, he orders them to bury the evidence for fear of upsetting the upcoming election. As the pressure builds, a deadly mudslide inundates Emilie’s plantation and she disappears. Lt. Rémy deserts his post and sets off on a desperate quest to rescue Emilie. But with all roads blocked, can the lovers escape the doomed city of St. Pierre before it’s too late?
