Darfur – In the troubled region of Darfur in Southern Sudan, a pregnant woman walks by the side of the road. She is approached by the frightening “janjawid”, the devil’s knights, who show no mercy towards her or her child, and end up killing her. But the living being inside the woman’s womb possesses wonderful and magical powers, just like that Land, wonderful and magical, but unfortunately so troubled.
