    • During a visit to her parents, who recently moved to Africa, 23 years old Geraldine must delve back into her past and confront old rivalries with her older sister, Alice, who bullied her as a child.
      In Senegal, she discovers the African spirit, magic, beliefs and customs, and, gradually, uses them to alter her positions as the youngest child and get the better of her sister.
      Overcoming her fears, she takes her initiation to extremes.
      Once victim, she is now a tormentor.
