Lungometraggio | –


In Iyi village, villagers worship the mermaid deity Mami Wata and turn to their healer Mama Efe, the intermediary between them and the goddess, as well as Mama Efe’s daughter, Zinwe, and her protegee, Prisca. When their children begin to die and disappear, local resident Jabi casts doubt among the population, while Zinwe flees, driven by her own anguish. Soon, the arrival of rebellious warlord Jasper tips the scales in Jabi’s favor. With the village under new control, Prisca and Zinwe must plot to save their people and restore Mami Wata’s glory to Iyi.
