In a remote Zambian village, a nine-year-old girl (Margaret Mulubwa) is accused of being a witch and given a stark choice: to accept her supernatural branding and live a tethered life as a sorceress, or to cut her ties with local tradition and be transformed into a goat that may be killed and eaten for supper.

This is the debut film from writer-director Rungano Nyoni, who was born in Zambia and part-raised in Wales.

It’s a daringly satirical parable of magic and misogyny, superstition and social structures.
