Based on the short story by Edwardian writer H.H. Munro, Sredni Vashtar is a chilling, gothic fairy tale. After the death of his parents, twelve year old Conradin is sent to live with his strict aunt in the Scottish highlands. Her world is a stark contrast to the warm colourful life conradin has left behind. Fuelled by growing hatred, Conradin creates Sredni Vashtar – a vicious, glorious God of everything his aunt opposes.
