THE KNOT

Davina Lee

St. Lucia | 2017 | 15 mins

Gina and Gerald secretly cast love spells on each other.  Now, they are unhappily together, but unable to leave the relationship, because of their spells. Can they undo what they’ve done?

‘The Knot’ is based on a true story, originally retold by a priest, for the purpose of a
magazine article written by Jacintha Annius-Lee. The article explored the use of Obeah
in Saint Lucia, including ‘love ties’, which was further explored in the film.
