Birth - Sacrifice and Superstition... A spiritual adventure where traditional customs confront personal desire, and how the birth of twins in a Ndebele tribal community, in South Africa, leads to both a spiritual awakening and a questioning of ones own beliefs.
Closely interlinked family traditions where each member plays a role, religious taboos being unconditionally practiced in an environment where the ‘witch doctors’ wields undeniable powers of both worlds and is the keeper of their spiritual law.
And in the deep crevices of her cave Mthisa, the witchdoctor, agrees to help the Spirit People rescue the rejected twin and raise him in their ways. Until the day he is ready to return to his village, As chief.
Now fraught with the meaning of life, can Mandla convince his Ndebele people that God does not exist?
