The African curse – A terrifying creature preys on the inhabitants of an African village whilst they are going about their business: it paralyses and kills them, destroying everything in its path and spreading death. The wise healer M’fundice begins a ritual to chase off the evil forces, but he suddenly has a terrible vision: the only thing able to defeat the monster is the purity and courage of a young girl. It will be Nweti, the niece, who will defeat the spirit and keep it forever away from the village, whilst a thin rain pours down like a blessing, washing away all evil.
