An African fairy tale about a young boy who is very different: an albino, Khalifa has been abandoned by his parents, but is much loved by a little girl named Mina, his adoptive mother Soussou, and the old cow who is his nanny. When rustlers steal his cow, Khalifa disappears in pursuit, and in his absence, an old legend takes hold of the community’s collective imagination. The albino boy has been transformed into a spirit bent on punishing the kids in the district. If Khalifa reappears, will the flesh-and-blood child be able to exorcise the specter of a bad-tempered ghost?
