England, 1644. Folklore runs rife throughout the country. Lycanthropes prowl by the moon, and women are murdered on accusation of witchcraft. In the township of Elkwood, Ellie Harewood becomes a victim of renowned Witchfinder General, Matthew Hopkins. Bound to a tree and left to die, Ellie is discovered just minutes from death by Sister Luna, an old hag haunting the forest. Sensing great power within the young woman, Luna barters with Samael, the spirit entrusted to deliver Ellie to the afterlife, agreeing a greater amount of souls in place of Ellie, if she be spared. With one month to make good on the promise, Ellie is released to the guidance of Sister Luna, who must teach her to realise the art of witchraft. Meanwhile, Hopkins and his company of hunters must find the witch and deliver her to London at the King's request, or face a trial of fraud brought about by the most powerful people in England; Parliament. A race against time ensues between Ellie and the Witchfinder. Can Hopkins find the witch and deliver her to London, or will Ellie master the power lying dormant inside and deliver the souls as promised, before Samael returns to reclaim her?
