When the barren Frieda is rescued by mist creatures from the dark forest, she begins to doubt her own faith, despite the orders of the strict priest from her commune.
Set in Medieval times, Witte Wieven tells the story of Frieda, a young woman struggling with apparent infertility, who is judged by her village for her inability to conceive. Perhaps she can find answers in the dark woods at the edge of the community…
