The Nightsiren is a drama set in the wild Slovak mountains. It tells the story of what it takes to be free if you don’t follow a conventional path.
Charlotte is coming back to an abandoned cabin from which she ran away as a child. The villagers believe that her return has awakened a malicious witch. Only the town weirdo Mira is not afraid to help Charlotte unravel her past and confront her demons.
The second feature of writer-director-producer team behind “Filthy” is based on beliefs still alive in the countryside of modern Slovakia. It deals with pressing issues in today’s world – fear and superstition which go hand in hand with misogyny and racism.
