I Spit on your Grave (Escupiré sobre vuestra tumba) (Serie TV)

Some evils can only be corrected with revenge.

United States 1940s. Lee Anderson is a Black man who looks white; he has light eyes and blonde hair. He decides to return from Europe and move to a town called Buckton, where his older brother, Tom, has arranged a job for him as a bookstore manager. Lee conceals his true racial identity from the town’s residents; his reason for doing so is simple: he intends to get revenge for the brutality his brothers suffered.

Lee’s brothers had darker skin, making their ethnic origin difficult to hide from society. One of Lee’s brothers fell in love with a white woman and was consequently murdered; he was lynched and hanged. His other brother endured a brutal beating inflicted by a heartless group of racists.

Lee’s plan involves infiltrating a local group of teenagers who spend their time partying and drinking. This is how he meets the Asquith sisters; beautiful, wealthy, and racist young women. They become the perfect targets for his violent and brutal revenge plan.


RELEVANT INFORMATION: Boris Vian was a French author, musician, and journalist, among others. He wrote “I Spit on Your Grave” under the pseudonym Vernon Sullivan, a name he used for other noir novels such as “No Way to Treat a Lady” or “I’ll Be Seeing You.” “I Spit on Your Grave” is a tale of violence that Vian employed to condemn the racism that still existed in the south of the United States — racism that persists today— and the harsh conditions that African Americans endure.

Boris Vian was one of the most controversial writers of his time and faced criticism on numerous occasions. However, this didn’t prevent “I Spit on Your Graves” from becoming a bestseller when it was published in 1947. Today, it remains a tough and unsettling novel that attracts millions of readers worldwide.

The work has been translated into more than 20 languages and was also adapted into a film in France in 1959.
