The Obsession is a dark and edgy stalker romance filled with desire and deception and sparked by an erotic love triangle that shifts between the American Midwest and several legendary Italian locales. When Stan, an American grad student, falls for Lina, a lovely Italian scholar, his unrequited feelings become a perverse passion. When he stalks her from a mid-Michigan college town to Bologna’s ancient streets, they are joined by Lina’s American lover John, who is also Stan’s mentor. With jealousy and trust issues fueling fear and loathing, lies and lethal rage, these three brilliant academics match wits with their lives at stake as they flee and chase down the storied Italian boot to a shocking conclusion on beautiful slopes of volcanic Mt. Etna.
