When horse farmer Wiebke adopts Raya, she is faced with the challenge of a lifetime. The five-year-old grew up in a Bulgarian orphanage and is possessed by a violent and explosive rage neither Wiebke nor the kindergarten employees know how to handle. But even as Raya’s uncontrollable anger threatens to tear Wiebke’s world apart, she refuses to give up on her. Infusing its social realist drama with thriller and horror elements, PELICAN BLOOD is an emotionally haunting tale of problem children, wild horses and tough love.
