When Peter Chandler, a starving artist with his own literary aspirations, is hired to help "The Great Man" finish his overdue book, an unlikely friendship ensues, secrets are revealed, and the lines of reality begin to blur. Ultimately, both men must face the terrifying beast dwelling in the dark forest, in a struggle for their artistry, their sanity, and their souls. Directed by Nancy Kammer, The Stone Witch features Dennis Kleinsmith, Ethan Kankula, and Diane Hill.
