This film depicts the real interrogations of two women, one being accused of witchcraft in Salem, 1692, and one being a victim of group rape in Hemsedal, 2014. It compares how the questioning is eerily similar, and shows how two women, living 300 years apart, can be treated the same way when charged with a crime.
