The prophecy – Wella is a young and scared princess who runs in the African forest. Suddenly, four bloodthirsty men appear before her. But before they can kill her, an unknown force kills the leader of the gang. While the other men run away, a powerful spirit comes out of the forest and gives a magic stick to Wella, announcing she is the chosen one to change the course of history…Wella doesn’t understand straight away, but when she hears somebody screaming, she realizes an entire population is about to be slaughtered by the enemy tribe. The girl intervenes and, thanks to the magic stick, she becomes an adult; a powerful and brave woman who is able to beat the enemy. Wella will reunite the two tribes under a single government that she leads. So, the prophecy comes true…
