In June 1991, 20 year old Kauser Bushir was killed at her Oldham home. Her family, believing she was possessed by a spirit or Djinn, had called in two Muslim holy men or Pirs. After seven days of exorcism and beatings she died. The programme interviews Pirs who carry out exorcisms, psychiatrists and lawyers and examines the events and beliefs that led up to the death.
