The Nightsiren is a drama set in the wild Slovak mountains. Charlotte is coming back to an abandoned cabin from which she ran away as a child. The local villagers believe that her return has awakened a malicious old witch. Only the town weirdo Mira is not afraid to help Charlotte unravel her past and confront her demons.
The second feature of successful writer-director-producer team behind “Filthy” is about modern witchcraft, womanhood and conspiracy. Based on beliefs still alive in the countryside of modern Slovakia, it deals with universal issues such as discrimination, superstition, gender and race.
