Based on the short story by pushcart-prize winning novelist, Emily Raboteau 'Murdering Mama's Boy' explores the life of an American-born Haitian girl named Marie-Michelle. On her 13th birthday, the obsessively jealous Marie Michelle attempts to kill Todd, the seven-year-old white boy her mother nannies. After some childish attempts on his life, Marie-Michelle visits a Houngan and buys a death spell. The next morning Todd's mother overdoses. Marie-Michelle guiltily wonders if her trip to the Houngan brought about this calamity. She returns to the Houngan shop to atone for her sins and to reverse the spell against Todd-- if it's not too late...
