“The Plague Doctor” is a visionary psycho thriller based on history and legends surrounding the mysterious island of Poveglia in Venice, Italy. The main character, a young doctor named Mattia, will find his story interlaced with the legend of the island, where in the seventeenth century thousands of people suffering from the bubonic plague were abandoned by plague doctors to die.
Upon being called to care for an elderly writer, a young doctor finds himself trapped by deranged visions. The echoes of a timeless love will interlace his reality with the obscure legend of a haunted Venetian island, and the ancient Italian mask of the plague doctor.
Since 2012, the director Emanuele constantly worked on the project of The Plague Doctor. He wrote the first draft of the script, crafted the characters of the story, and built a presence within social media.
