Looking for inspiration and to pursue her passion for Expressionist painting, Aarya, a young, British Asian woman, leaves her family in the city to house-sit, in a large secluded property surrounded by beautiful Scottish landscapes. Aarya's peaceful world is shattered when she comes in to possession of a red scarf, sent by her aunt on recent travels to Pakistan. Unknown to Aarya, the scarf carries the voice of a Churail, a demonic and malevolent South Asian Witch (traditionally depicted with long black hair over her face and backwards feet), who desperately tries to convey the violence she had been subjected to at the time of her death. Aarya finds herself alone and lost in a world of art and violence, challenging her perception of human compassion. As her picturesque world starts to crumble around her, Aarya is forced to face the devastating cycles of violence the Churail brings with her.
