When the young, beautiful Elizabeth Wade goes to live and work in an isolated, rural North Yorkshire village as their school teacher, little did she know that she was to be accused of witchraft and become the focus of suspicion, sexual desire and revenge, when a series of unexplained and terrible events befall the community.

It’s the early 1950s and the people of Bridgeford are still steeped in superstition and fear of evil goings on in their midst. It is no surprise therefore that they turn on Elizabeth, a vulnerable and defenceless woman…or so she appeared to be.
