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.

A mother's love for a child
24 January 2018 | by Jeff2sayshiSee all my reviews

Living in North America, access to hospitals, doctors, and the best medicine is something taken for granted. Children of the Mountain tells the story of a child born in Africa with a cleft lip, his top lip split in half not formed properly.

The mother has to make the decision of what to do with the child, and how to raise it. Her natural instinct is to care and love for it, but she is told by various other people of how to just dispose of him. She also tries hard throughout to find ways to cure him of the cleft lip, and other various illnesses he has.

The movie is clearly indie, and uses non-actors for the characters. Overall they do a fairly good job, though there are times when it's just a bit much. The movie also just keeps dragging the main character through the same dilemmas and by the end it all feels like a bit too much.
