Mystery and mystic, fun and friendship, shattered past and battered present, unexpressed love and expressed hatred.

This truth makes her lonely. Only one man understood her loneliness. Joe, the chef in the same cafeteria where Alice works. But Joe somehow felt short on confidence to walk up to Alice, grab her hand and say ‘I do’. He neither had the looks nor the physique of the men Alice dated. Joe realized that to win her over he must do something heroic. Like destroying a Yantra board?

      People around Sophie were killing themselves in the most horrible ways. Her employer drank
      acid, a stalker burnt himself alive, her brother jumped in front of a speeding train, and her lover jumped from a terrace. The presence of a ‘certain thing’ in her life had made them die. And now the same ‘thing’ leads her to a point from which her only escape is death. She was ready to slit her wrists. The hand holding the sharp blade shivered as she brought the blade close to her wrist. Suddenly a wooden cabinet in her room shook and trembled. One of the drawers rattled hard. ‘Some thing’ inside it wanted to come out. It made her more edgy and nervous. She was about to slit her wrist when suddenly the drawer opened! Her eyes stared in fear because she knew what was inside! – a Yantra board.

      HEXING is a film full of mystery, horror, drama, suspense and emotion.
