"My family hides a dark secret. The lies are eating us alive. Time to come out of the broom closet." On the anniversary of a tragic suicide, a diverse group of teenagers is drawn to the Simi Hills in Los Angeles. Others answer the call: Latino brothers battling an ancient curse and modern-day devotees of Charles Manson. The teens realize their lives are at risk when a shadow man unleashes a raging wildfire. The key to survival lies in long-buried lore. Within the Simi Hills is a magical realm concealed by the four directions. To the south are reality stars. West lies a dead president. The mass-murdering Manson family squatted north and the east birthed the porn industry. American Bruja: The Los Angeles Cauldron is a story of family secrets, buried treasure, and one fourteen-year-old girl determined to uncover the truth, no matter the cost.
