The Widowed Witch

Film stills

Nežinau, kaip jums atsidėkoti. Po to, kai išvirėt mane kubile, ryte tiesiog stryktelėjau iš lovos.

After losing her house and husband, rural woman Wang Erhao leads a stranded life with her ten-year-old brother-in-law in a modified “recreational vehicle”. While looking for a warm place to stay during winter, she pretends to be a shaman to rid villagers of evil spirits, and ironically, her juggled deceits often become real. However, she soon realises that improving people is beyond her powers.
