Best New Narrative Director, 2022 Tribeca Film Festival

Valeria, a young woman expecting her first child, becomes cursed by a sinister entity. Plunged into a terrifying and dangerous world, a group of witches emerge as her only hope for safety and salvation, but not without grave risk.

“Cervera reimagines a folktale and applies it in a modern magical realism context, exploring the tangible fears and anxieties of maternal identity”

—Meagan Navarro for Bloody Disgusting
