The return of Mouna – Papa Koloko is a generous old man who lives in the neighbourhood of Logbaba and from whom all the fruits of his mango plant are stolen. To discourage the children from stealing, first Papa Koloko appeals to traditional magic, hanging a talisman on the branches of the tree, but he does not get what he expects…Then he decides to exhume Mouma’s grave, a disturbing character of the village, and move it under the plant. This works! So much effort just to enjoy a mango, poor Papa Koloko…
