‘Obosheshot (At Last…)

What happens when the child of a demon is born in a village, where superstitions run
amok? Where people are gripped by fear and apprehension. In the midst of this, is the
mother whose love and sacrifice for her child acts as a barrier against the tribulations of the world. It is the tale of Numoli, who strives to give her child a voice, the use of which she has forfeited. While the villagers deem her to be possessed and impregnated by the demon, only she knows what hurts her. And when the demon returns to her life, although she is filled with rage and hatred, all she can ask for is her voice; to teach her child to speak and who needs his mother’s voice to comfort him. For now, only the words ‘bou’ (Mother) in her child’s voice can sweep away all her life.
