While visiting the grave
site of her mother, a young boy and his cousin meet an old woman outcast
by the village as a witch years before. Warned by his parents to stay away
from the woman, the boy is nonetheless drawn into her mysterious world.
When his cousin falls ill, he seeks the help of the woman, who then must
find a cure for the girl and for the intolerance of the village.
Refreshingly natural performances and beautiful scenery highlight this
feature shot in Burkina Faso. 90 minutes.
