BRIEF SYNOPSIS

Set in the American Midwest, a village girl, object of the preacher’s advances, runs to the woods for safety. Here she witnesses the birth of the Witch Boy from beneath the cloak of the Conjor-Man. They fall in love and together return to the village where the villagers shy away from them, sensing something uncanny. The preacher, mad with jealousy, condemns the girl and stirs the village men into abandoning their dancing and attacking the Witch Boy. The girl dies and the Conjor-Man reappears to see the rebirth of the Witch Boy.
