Description: In a small African village, elderly Sana (Fatimata Sanga) is ostracized, but 10-year-old Bila (Noufou Ouedraogo) doesn’t think she’s a witch like everyone else. He even calls her Yaaba, which means grandmother. After Bila’s cousin, Nopoko (Roukietou Barry), becomes deathly ill and Sana saves her, Bila comes to Sana’s defense when the village medicine man accuses her of taking Nopoko’s soul. It isn’t until after Sana’s death that the real reason behind the village’s hatred comes to light.
