Synopsis

Acclaimed Burkinabe filmmaker Gaston Kaboré revisits the characters from his 1982 debut Wend Kuuni in this dramatic tale with fantastical elements. Wend Kuuni was the son of a sorceress who was raised by foster parents and grew up to become a respected citizen in his village. But one day his sister falls ill, and many of his neighbours are convinced Wend's heritage in sorcery is to blame. Wend sets forth on a long and eventful journey to find a traditional healer who can restore his sister to health, leading him to confront his own inner being.

Directed by Gaston Kaboré
