Executive Producer & Art Director: Sherman Hawthorne. Director of Photography: Zarina Holmes. Story by Sherman Hawthorne.
Advocating The Devil is a story of lust, anger and jealousy set in a crumbling English country mansion.
It is about a love triangle between three characters who are permanently dark and sultry.
Hugo, the young lover of Arnold Rogers, an artist, had been released from a 10-year jail sentence. After his release, Hugo made his way to Arnold's place where their liaison resumed. Arnold's beautiful yet manic depressive wife, Vivien, walked into them while walking the dogs. Passionate arguments ensued.
The closing shot is of Hugo sat on the floor in a corner with Arnold dying in his arms.
