Synopsis

The Ceddo try to preserve their traditional African culture against the onslaught of Islam, Christianity, and the slave trade. When King Demba sides with the Muslims, the Ceddo kidnap his daughter, Princess Dior Yacine, to protest against their forced conversion to Islam. After trying to rescue the princess, a number of heirs to the throne are killed, and the king is murdered during the night.

Eventually the kidnappers are killed and the princess is brought back to the village to confront the Imam, as all the villagers assume Muslim names. This is a powerful tale of confrontations between religious forces and their effects on African culture and tradition.
