Synopsis

Disillusioned reporter, Godwin, arrives in a West-African village to cover a local festival, but soon finds himself swept up in a witchhunt.

A series of misfortunes leads villagers to accuse a young, mute girl of being a witch. Their Pastor insists that the only hope of salvation lies in her exorcism and death. His compelling rhetoric and ability to incite fear into the people splits the village and threatens to tear their fragile world apart.

Godwin and a young school teacher attempt to save the girl’s life, bravely fighting back against corruption and false prophets.

Based on True Events, The Cursed Ones is a story of morality, religion, corruption and community in the dark heart of Africa. http://thecursedones.com
