A comedic thriller and a dazzling celebration of feminine power.
A gruesome murder in a small town leads a female sheriff, a cocky young detective, and a university professor with a taste for younger men, into a labyrinth of secret lives, ancient magic, and multiple suspects.
The exceptional Kat Sandler uses the Slavic folktale of Baba Yaga, the witch who lives in a magical hut that sits on chicken legs, as a launching pad for an exploration of female power in its many forms – wisdom, rage, motherhood, and sex.
Yaga races along and draws you into a world where nothing is quite what it seems.

“Sandler has triumphantly reclaimed the evil-woman myth. Move over, Wicked and Maleficent, and welcome Yaga to the sisterhood.” – Martin Morrow, The Globe and Mail
