“A Dark Song”.. A clash of secrets, faith and demons.. available on VOD April 28th.

A Dark SongHow far would you go to get the chance to talk again to a loved one that passed away? That is the question that Sophia, a grieving mother that can’t move on from the loss of her son will have to answer, and thru a black magic ritual taken from the book of Abramelin, with the help of a very cynical occultist, she starts a journey that will test not only her faith, but also her mental and physical endurance.
