Duke of Burgundy is inspired on the 2014 film by Peter Strickland that focuses on the relationship between two women. Taking its title from a rare species of butterfly, The Duke of Burgundy chronicles the increasingly intimate relationship between butterfly professor Cynthia and her student and housekeeper, Evelyn. Evelyn is subject to strict behavioural expectations and high standards for cleanliness. When Evelyn does not complete tasks to Cynthia's satisfaction, she is punished. Although Evelyn may seem like the slave, she is, in a certain respect, the master. She is submissive by choice and, in fact, is the architect of the increasingly peculiar and deviant sex acts Cynthia unleashes.
