The Sea Purple

A remarkable true story of forbidden love, "The Sea Purple" is the delicate, intensely moving tale of two spirited women who face the disapproving eyes of a cold-hearted world. Set on a remote island near Sicily in the second half of the 19th century, Angela and Sara are destined to be together. Relentlessly challenging the rules of society Angela is forced into a corner where she must completely change her outward appearance and disguise herself as a man in an out and out attempt to remain close to the woman she loves
