Carrying out a banal incident in her local village in Africa, 8-year old girl Shula is accused of witchcraft. Following a short trial she is located guilty, taken into state custody and exiled to a witch camp in the midst of a desert. At the camp she takes part in a initiation ceremony where she’s shown the principles surrounding her new life as a witch. Like one other residents, Shula is linked with a bow that will be attached with a coil that perches in a sizable tree. She’s told that will she ever slice the ribbon, she’ll be cursed and transformed right into a goat.
