The Hunt is an urban fantasy feature film starring a strong but tormented female lead, with lots of action and some goosebumps.
Amaya, a woman haunted by a tragic past from supernatural events, learns to accept her new role as a witch hunter–the hard way.
Amaya knows that witches are all around us. They can be good or evil. However, as far as Amaya is concerned, any use of magic risks endangering our reality. She takes it upon herself to eliminate magic from all witches the only way she knows: a painful process that is akin to torture.
Finding the witches is hard enough. For Amaya, the real challenge is finding the brutality within herself to torment the good witches while, at the same time, finding the strength to survive the evil ones.
