Dark of the Moon is a powerful, mystical folk drama. A tale of tragic love, reminiscent of Romeo and Juliet, is at the heart of a story which depicts a clash of incongruent worlds - the mountains where witches and other supernatural beings reside and the valley where the humans live. When John, a "witch boy," falls in love with the beautiful, lusty mortal, Barbara Allen, he makes a pact with a conjurer to gain human status. His wish is granted on the condition that Barbara remains faithful to him for one year. However, a myriad of characters from both "worlds" conspire to thwart their happiness through a series of extraordinary, haunting, and sometimes frightening plot twists.
