Nyama and Sibiri are members of Dozo hunters fraternity. Because of his love for Sarah, Sibiri doesn’t hesitate to push his friend in a well while hunting. He will then announce Nyama’s death, telling that he has been killed by a lion. Months later, Nyama comes back to the village with an evangelist sect that welcomed him. Amnesiac, he will not recognize anyone and doesn’t remember anything at all.
