Valerie has prayed to be a mother. She and her husband, Raul, finally see one of their long-time dreams come true. But the day she finds out she’s pregnant she is cursed by a sinister spirit. Alone, with her family turned against her, Valeria finds herself lost in a world of folk horror and chilling, urban landscapes that could be of her own making. It’s there she finds that a group of local witches are either her only hope of confronting her innermost demons or the evil behind a supernatural entity known as La Huesera.
