Strange things can happen in workaday Paris. When lonely Stella finds a new friend in her neighbour Rose, she little suspects that Rose is an outcast, an object of both fascination and fearful hatred. An eerie atmosphere gradually builds to a dramatic climax, and the lives of all involved are changed forever. More
Stella’s neighbour Rose attracts birds and will have no electrical plugs in her flat. The mystery deepens. Is Rose a witch? What powers does she hold? When Stella falls in love with their mutual friend, Olivier, a curious triangle is woven that one senses can only end in drama and shocking revelation. More than a mystery and more than romance, 'Candlepower' is a social commentary at many levels: family relationships, the nature of friendship, loneliness, the paranormal, the hard-edge effects of the city on wild things. One begins to see that everything we do is connected in complex lines to others and to nature.
