Overview

Born and raised in traditional families, Leopoldo and Luana get married. The groom insists on going to a small city in the mountains, named Miguel Pereira, to spend their honeymoon, in spite of family’s wishes. Leopoldo wants to know the place where his ancestors had a coffee farm in the nineteenth century, sold just before the great crash of 1929.

After a series of unfortunate accidents, they will come up against Odete, which overcomes the time and space barrier, to avenge her past.

For the doctorate in Literature, Vera Follain, Tainted Odete is much more than a horror story:

- Rogerio puts his literature to the service of what his own practice of writing often silents. Brings to light forgotten narratives, that have no record on the literature world, but, on occasion, may still haunt those who insist in disregarding the past or rewrite it into clean idealized versions.

In this last year, he joined the Masters Course on Brazilian Literature from the Rio de Janeiro State University. In 1997, he worked at TV Globo as a screenwriter. Finally, in 2004, he revoked his contract as employee, however he continued to work as a freelancer documentary filmmaker for Globo, while starting his academic career. Nowadays, he is a professor and spends his scarce free time writting novels, plays and poetry. The writer Rogério Sacchi de Frontin wrote the supernatural romance "Tainted Odete" in Portuguese. He launched the book in Portugal and in Brazil by Portuguese publisher Chiado and also an e-book written in Portuguese by Amazon.com. The return, he said, was good, but not enough. According to him, the English language has the potential to greatly increase the number of readers in the story of the slave girl who goes through the time portal to promote an ancestral revenge. Today he lives in the city of Petrópolis, founded by Emperor Dom Pedro II. This city is located in the mountainous region of the State of Rio de Janeiro, with very mild climate.
