Mona, a contemporary model, is possessed by spirits lingering in the Cape Coast Castle in Ghana. She travels to the past where, as a house slave called Shola on a sugar plantation, she is constantly abused by the slave master. Nunu, an African-born slave, and Shango, Shola''s lover, continuously rebel against the slave system. For Nunu this means direct conflict with her son, a mulatto benefitting from the system as a head slave. Inspired by Nunu and Shango''s determination to defy the system, Shola finally takes her fate into her own hands. Rated R .
