Healing the Wounds

A deep rift divides Rochain. Because the chief of the village called the emergency services as soon as he suspected that the Ebola virus might have broken out there, the Kargbo family believes he is responsible for the death of their family members. The film team attempt to arbitrate between the two sides. Will they be able to restore peace in the village?

»During the Ebola outbreak in our village, our chief called 117 for help. If I‘d been a soldier or a policemen, I would have killed the chief.«
