A tiny voice is heard from inside the womb of a pregnant woman: “Mother, give birth to me!” The mother replies: “A child who can speak from his mother’s womb can give birth to himself”.
The tiny Kiriku is born into an African village upon which a sorceress called Karaba has cast a terrible spell: the spring has dried up, the villagers are being blackmailed, the men of the village have either been kidnapped or have mysteriously disappeared.
Karaba is a stunning and cruel woman, surrounded by fearless and servile fetishes. But no sooner has Kiriku delivered himself from his mother’s womb than he wants to rid the village of Karaba’s curse and understand the cause of her wickedness.
