Four years after the filming of Return to the Land of Souls, about the rituals of trance and possession, the narrator travels to Ivory Coast in search of a priestess possessed by the Spirit of the Panther. Filmed in black and white with the rhythm of a road movie, he will travel to Ghana, with the priestess and her entourage, to look for the only drummers who areĀ able to invoke the Spirit.
