The Witch Hunters (Zlogonje)

Ten-year-old Jovan was born with partial cerebral palsy. Shy, self-conscious and without many friends, he often escapes in his imagination to a place where he is a crime-fighting superhero not limited by his own body. His world shifts when a new girl arrives in his class. Milica, not intimidated by much, chooses the seat next to Jovan and immediately enlists him to help her free her father from his girlfriend, whom she is convinced is a witch who has placed her father under a spell. As evidence, Milica cites drinking weird green juices, alien-like substances stored in jars and consumption of black salt. Between school and physical therapy, the new friends hatch a plan to expose Milica’s father’s girlfriend and break the spell; Milica believes this will reunite her parents. Preoccupied with the plan, Jovan begins to enjoy life and overcome many of his insecurities as he focuses on helping a friend. The Witch Hunters is an honest portrayal of struggle and acceptance, and how true friendship can lead to undiscovered inner strength.
