Jade of Death

2017  |  Fantasy, Action, Drama  |  6 x 10 minutes

Small town girl Jade has a powerful ability. She can hear when and how people are going to die. She ran away from her hometown and gets by working at a seedy freak show carnival as the “Fortune-Teller of Death”, but now people are after her. There’s more to her past than she lets on, and there’s more to her abilities than she knows.
