In an early 19th century African village, Wend Kuuni, a young man, lives with his adopted family after his mother was killed as a witch. When Pughneere – his adopted sister – becomes ill, the villagers suspect Wend Kuuni. In order to save Pughneere’s life (and his own) he must set out on a journey to find a healer. His quest brings him in contact with people around him and is a journey of self-discovery.
