Evil Eye

Evil Eye


Yara knows that her life is more rewarding than her mother's - so why doesn't it feel like enough? After Yara responds to a colleague's racist provocation, she is put on probation at work and must attend mandatory counselling. Her mother blames a family curse for Yara's troubles, and while Yara doesn't believe in superstitions, she still finds herself growing increasingly uneasy about falling victim to the same mistakes as her mother. Yara's carefully constructed world begins to implode and suddenly she must face up to the difficulties of her childhood, not fully realising how that will impact not just her own future, but that of her daughters too.
