Synopsis by Clare Perez-Izaguirre Lopez

Set in contemporary America, this fantasy horror reveals a world where witches and witchcraft are illegal. Government-assigned witch hunters use archaic methods of capital punishment to respond to reports of magic. Clare (Gideon Adlon) operates alongside her family in a secret network assisting witches in crossing into Mexico for asylum. However, with one trip disrupted, they must shelter the women in their home while the authorities close in. Written and directed by Elle Callahan.
