Synopsis
An African legend forms the basis of this African and German-produced film that is set within an ancient desert town, Sitakili. It is a prosperous town filled with beautiful mud palaces, and is ruled by the despotic tyrant Guimba Dunbuya who spends his day supine on a dais surrounded by servants and his lascivious, dwarf son, Jangine. Though Jangine has been betrothed to the lovely Kani from birth, he finds himself really lusting after her broad-beamed, voluptuous mother, Meya. To make his spoiled son happy, Guimba demands that Meya's husband divorce her. Meanwhile Guimba marries Kani himself. The townsfolk are enraged by this outrageous behavior and revolt against the tyrant. Unfortunately, Guimba is really a powerful sorcerer who has used black magic to obtain and keep his power. In the end, he has a grand showdown with Siriman Keita, a good magician/hunter who comes to end Guimba's repressive reign. ~ Sandra Brennan, All Movie Guide
