In Cruel Peter…

“It is Christmas 1908 in Messina, one of the richest merchant cities of the Mediterranean. Peter, the 13-year-old son of a rich English family is notorious for his cruelty to children, animals and servants. One night he is ambushed and wakes up in a coffin underground in the city’s Gothic cemetery, buried in retaliation for his callousness by a servant boy from his mother’s estate. When a powerful earthquake razes Messina to the ground, Peter is trapped and his whereabouts are forgotten. Until a century later an English archaeologist and his daughter arrive in the city.”
