Summary
For the rural Chokwe tribe of southwestern Zaire, hardship and starvation are a way of life. The mood in their villages is one of austerity and mystery. To assure that their modest food supply is distributed fairly, the Chokwe use a complex system of reprisals in which sorcerers are hired to resurrect ancestral ghosts to haunt those who hoard goods, causing them illness and death. This program, from the award-winning producers of Healers of Ghana, focuses on four patients and two healers, following them through their traditional medical treatments. The program also observes the rigorous initiation ritual in which masked dancers help prepare boys for manhood
