Description: A spellbinding, supernaturally tinged thriller that explores the dark world of commercial sex trafficking … Upon the death of her voodoo, priestess mother, Stella, a young Haitian girl inherits her mother’s voodoo powers. Stella’s disabled father is forced by crushing poverty to sell her into domestic slavery. Stella strides through the muck and mire of a tawdry world where the lives of innocent young women are cheap and exploitation is a daily affair. The narrative spills forth in tangential lines that leapfrog back and forth between the twisted, erotic actions of a psychotic, Cajun voodoo sorcerer and his cabal of wealthy, powerful men, and Stella’s efforts to protect exploited young women, then builds to an outlandish climax reminiscent of Stanley Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut.
