Storyline

Essuman, a yam seller and a single parent, gives birth to a child with cleft palate and her first instinct is to run away as she's accused of causing her child's "imperfection." She makes the attempt, but her conscience brings her back and she accepts her fate. Three years later, her son is diagnosed with cerebral palsy as he's unable to talk, sit or walk like his peers. Determined to find cure for her son, Essuman hops from hospital to hospital until she accepts that the condition is incurable. She gives up on the hospitals and seeks the help of a herbalist, a protestant pastor and then a spiritualist. They all either dupe her, take advantage of her and or mislead her. The stress of taking care of a disabled child and the criticisms drives Essuman to make certain difficult decisions.

Very realistic film
5 January 2019 | by boris-91231See all my reviews

I saw the film in French version on Canal Plus (France). I really appreciated the script and the message conveyed. The Director in this film succeeded to describe the classic evolution of people in this situation. Poverty and despair leading these people to seek alternative solutions (usually still vain). A society that mystifies and dramatizes the handicap leading with misinformation. and the State that is totally absent. Indeed these people must live on the hope of seeing a foreign health mission come to hope to see their patient have a care. Well done!
