"The Hair Witch" adapts well-known and obscure Grimm Fairy Tales through an Indian cultural perspective to explore the gravity of human connection, mental health, and embracing your inner strength.
As a witch with the power to cast magic with her hair, Keya is content about staying in the safety of her tower home. When a powerful and deadly curse strikes Rana, the crown prince and Keya's best friend, she has no choice but to travel to the mysterious and dangerous Vandelfel Woods to ask the Witch of the Woods for help. Her traveling companion? Vishval, one of Rana's elite guard with a secret of his own and a hatred of witches. With creatures, killer plants, and rogue magic blocking their way, Vishval and Keya must act to save Rana before the curse claims his life. A retelling mixing both well-known and obscure Grimm Fairy Tales combined with Indian culture, "The Hair Witch" explores how mental health can impact every aspect of one's life and the importance of connecting with others.
