Samoa. Robert Louis Stevenson, afflicted with tuberculosis, is living with his family in tropical splendour. The homesick author is pleased to meet a Mr. Baker on the beach, but his fellow Scotsman is a missionary disdainful of both the natives… and Stevenson's work. Then a young woman is raped and murdered, and a twist on Stevenson's Jekyll and Hyde story begins to play out. 2003, c2002.
