The Cursed Ones

BY Nana Obiri Yeboah & Maximilian Claussen

A series of misfortunes lead a West African village to accuse a young girl, Asabi, of witchcraft. Their Pastor insists that salvation lies in her exorcism and death, using his compelling rhetoric to incite fear into the people and turn Asabi’s mother against her own daughter.

Disillusioned reporter, Godwin finds himself swept up in the witch hunt. With the help of a young school teacher, he attempts to save Asabi’s life, fighting back against corruption and false prophets.

Based on true events, The Cursed Ones is a story of morality, corruption, and community in the heart of Africa.
