The story takes place in today’s Ghana (Africa). It is inspired by a young girl called Edinam. She was a slave of Fetish Priests. Against all odds, Edinam escapes the shrine and continues her education. As the film follows Edinam’s life from the age of innocence to premature adulthood, the viewers get to see a beautiful showcase of the real and very animated African life in a typical village.
According to the customary practice in Ghana's Volta region, which has lasted some 300 years, if someone commits a serious crime or social infraction, traditional leaders order that a young girl from that family be sent to the shrine as a form of atonement. She is expected to serve the priests for many years, after which the family might redeem her. In this time, the chief priest and his entourage genitally mutilate and sexually abuse the girls. They consider them their own ‘property’. The abuse leads to numerous pregnancies and miscarriages of girls as young as 12 years old.
Edinam (Real Name: Belinda Siamey), the protagonist of the story, made history in Africa by playing herself in the principal role of this feature film.

“Everybody can judge a movie from what they see and hear, but there are sometimes certain circumstances, motivations and facts regarding a film that we have to know to fully understand its content. This documentary will show parts of several films I made, and it will explain the ‘why’, the ‘how’ and some relevant aspects related to those movies,” says the Maestro.
The first screenplay Pischiutta ever wrote signalled the director’s life-long affection for the sea; in Retrospective, the blue Aegean Sea becomes the backdrop of the story.
