Directed by Maria Wilson
In this short thriller by first-time director Maria Wilson, a young modern-day witch anxiously prepares for the mystical rite of passage that determines whether her abilities will be used for good or for evil. Deep in the woods, at an isolated cabin, Penelope (played by Maria Wilson) looks out of place as she awkwardly chops firewood in preparation for that night’s ritual. Familial pressure and the uncertainty of her future weighs down on her as she comes to terms with the fact that it’s not just her life hanging in the balance.
A young modern-day witch endures the mystical rite of passage that determines whether her abilities will be used for good or for evil.

Man, this would’ve been a great long feature film
Just needed a little bit more, but still cool.
Really good lead and enjoyed the subject and execution - no pun intended. I wish it had been longer, but that's the mark of a good short film I believe. Leaves you wanting more without over-explaining.
Cool concept, but not much else going on. Might have worked as like a series of shorts or something more fleshed out.
