EN - Death of Cupid is a dark and mysterious love story about the freakishly abusive relationship between the passionate Gabriella and manipulative Leon. Expect verbal attacks ‘sans merci’ and a kind of longing love that most people would call insane. Don't ask why and how. When passion becomes evil...
