The Story

Crazy Mary is the tale of a widow who has lost all her family and is tormented by children who truly believe she is a witch. The neighboring preacher’s wife invites Mary to Christmas dinner. The children become worried when Josh can’t find his magic walking stick. Then tragedy strikes and the neighbors take things into their own hands with unpredictable results.
