The Witch takes us to New England in the year 1630. At the beginning of the seventeenth century, many Puritan Englishmen had to flee to practice their religion to what was the germ of the United States and the family that We see in the film are part of that group.
The marriage has nothing more and nothing less than five children, with those who live in the vicinity of a forest with a somewhat sinister appearance, according to the people who have been there a little longer than they are cursed.
They do not pay much attention, but the fact is that the crops do not grow and eventually they are spoiled. However, the most serious is not this, but the small family disappears without a trace.
This situation makes the family members face each other, which makes it all very bad for all.
