Logline

"Sister Witch" is inspired by a historical figure's life- a sordid tale that's been near and dear to my heart since the campfires of my youth. Some of the greatest tales I've known, I first heard there. Moll Dyer led a tragic life and was cast as a pariah for her non-conformance. After 300 years, perhaps we are finally able to shine the light of reason on the horrors done to her. Stare them in the eye and plead for forgiveness.

Starting Description

Moll Dyer hopes to leave her troubles behind when she immigrates to the New World, but even an ocean can't keep her family's curse at bay. She fights injustice in a new land founded on tolerance, but ruled by bigotry. When the ancient enemy returns, Moll must fight for her family & her very soul.

Ending Description

In a final confrontation between good and evil, Moll faces the forces of darkness, even as a vigilante mob sets her cabin ablaze. Calling upon friends she's lost along the way, she draws on their combined strength. Her sacrifice defeats the demons, but in the process, she condemns her own soul.
