Esme lives on her own in a condemned block of flats with only her plants for company. An easy target for the local girl gang who think the 'old witch' is hiding some cash.

Or so thinks Rhiannon as she bursts into Esme's flat to rob her. Esme is not going to give up so easily and events take a sinister turn as Rhiannon begins to fear that Esme may actually be using Witchcraft after all. Can words really make stuff happen?

With the flat crumbling around them and the gang outside becoming louder and more dangerous, it becomes harder to distinguish who is the victim and who is the bully.

Hayley Carmichael and Danielle Vitalis star in this modern Gothic drama.
