The city of Salem, Massachusetts will be forever known as the place they tried and executed witches. I don't know if this is the locale. It's certainly the inspiration. The evil deacon wants to get his hands on a child he finds attractive. Her mother is a wonder, helping the sick and telling a few fortunes. She has the evil deck of 52. When the girl won't go for the guy, he accuses both of them of being witches. Of course, he is immediately believed. The mother is tortured and the girl is eventually set to be burned at the stake. While the conclusion is really stupid, it reminds us of the evils that Christianity, in the name of "right," has foisted on the world. Even today, in 2017, so much of organized religion is used as a weapon to destroy the lives of the defenseless. It is a sad state of affairs and appears to be getting worse every day.
