Sacred Evil is about duality. It explores the premise that reality always has two sides. Where there is light, there is darkness.
Based on a true story from the case files of a real-life Witch, Ipsita Roy Chakraverti, Sacred Evil is the story of three women separated by a twenty-year-old secret. It’s the story of a nun, a witch and a girl in search of her mother.
The nun is Martha, a 45-year-old withering woman who lives in a secluded convent in Calcutta. Even in the sanctuary of the Church, she is haunted by a spirit that threatens her sanity.
The Witch, Ipsita, is called upon by the unconventional Mother Superior to heal Martha's soul.
The task is difficult as Martha is uncomfortable talking about the events in her past. Using her skills as a healer and her training as a Jungian psychotherapist, Ipsita gradually opens the door to Martha's story.
The story of the one who haunts her.Claudia. A young Anglo-Indian girl, growing up with the angst of not knowing her mother, Maureen, alienated in her Indian surroundings by her blue eyes and blonde hair.
The story goes back and forth as events from Claudia's life begin to intersect Martha's and Ipsita tries to sort out the tangled threads of the past and the present.
In her search for the lost Maureen who everyone says looked much like her, like ‘a real English lady', Claudia becomes obsessed with her mother's image. She begins to turn into her mother. Like her, she seeks out and falls in love with a foreigner, Pierre, a young Frenchman in Calcutta for his doctorate. But Pierre is never sure who is in love with him, Claudia or Maureen.
As she tries to heal Martha with the centuries old rituals of the Witchcraft, Ipsita learns of Claudia's struggle to keep her sanity and Martha's attempts to save her soul. Martha tried hard to bring her to the Church and let God heal her, but Ipsita learns that somewhere the attempts failed. Something has happened. Claudia's burden has become Martha's.
During her efforts to heal Martha's spirit, Ipsita is led to a startling discovery in the end which makes her wonder if the sacred will ever be as strong in us as the evil is.
