Young tribal girl, Yefon Labam, knows she’s different !
During the 1950's, in her Central African village, women
are uneducated and are expected to either work on a farm
or be one of many wives, but Yefon dares for more—
she wants to learn how to read, even if looking at
a book could mean her death. Although everyone thinks
she’s an abomination, including her mother and sisters,
her father knows she’s destined for greater things.
When he is murdered, Yefon clings to the gift he gave
her for inspiration—a red necklace. She soon comes
to realize that the necklace is no ordinary ornament,
but a talisman crafted by the spirits. Yefon walks a
dangerous path that could lead to her freedom…
or her death.
