Can we control our own destinies or is there an entity already controlling our livelihoods? Filmmaker Elbert van Strien seeks out those answers in the thriller Marionette with a child psychologist discovering a child having mystical powers to alter people’s lives.

The supernatural thriller stars Thekla Reuten (In Bruges), Peter Mullan (Children of Men), Emun Elliott (Game of Thrones), and Elijah Wolf (T2: Transpotting).

Here’s the official synopsis:

In the wake of losing her husband in a seemingly random accident, child psychiatrist Marianne Winter starts life anew in Scotland. There, she begins treating a secretive 10-year-old who claims to control the future through his drawings. When his horrific sketches start coming true, Marianne begins an obsession that will derail her life and reality.
