Approached by a witch to grow a special ingredient, a lonely farmer is shocked to find a baby growing in his garden. He must set aside his independent ways to protect the newborn Mandrake from the witch's clutches.

Directed by myself with an amazing crew of ten peers, this film was completed in Spring 2020. Follow our festival progress and get to know us on Instagram @themandrakefilm !
