A young girl accused of a village's series of misfortunes. A pastor abusing his rhetoric power to instill fear and distrust in the congregation. A disillusioned reporter swept up in the witchhunt, fighting false prophets in order to save the girl's life. Set in rural West Africa, where villagers believe heavily in the evil of witchcraft and sorcery, "The Cursed Ones" is a thrilling, suspenseful story of superstition, morality, corruption and community in the heart of Africa. —My Nguyen
