THE CURSED ONESA series of misfortunes lead a West African village to accuse a young girl, Asabi (OPHELIA DZIDZORNU), of witchcraft. Their Pastor (FRED AMUGI) insists that salvation lies in her exorcism and death, using his compelling rhetoric to incite fear into the people and turn Asabi’s mother (AMA K ABEBRESE) against her own daughter. Disillusioned reporter, Godwin (ORIS ERHUERO) finds himself swept up in the witch hunt. With the help of a young school teacher (JOSEPH OTSIMAN), he attempts to save Asabi’s life, fighting back against corruption and false prophets.

Based on true events, The Cursed Ones is a story of morality, corruption, and community in the heart of Africa.
