    • Synopsis
    • The Noonday Witch tells a story of mother Eliška and her eight years old daughter Anetka. Together, they move into a remote house to begin their new life with the ‘father away on business’, as the mother claims. However, when the daughter discovers the truth and realises her own mother lied to her all along, their relationship begins to wither. At that time, the mythical creature of The Noonday Witch begins to materialise. It is coming closer and closer and the question is poised: is the danger real or is it all in the mother’s crumbling head?
