Even today black magic, witchcraft and enchantment play a big part in Congolese daily life. Apostle Medard, one of the healers of the Ngunza church, takes care of both the body and the soul of his followers using exorcism rituals. A piercing portrait of a special individual as well as a portrait of Congo as a country in crisis, where poverty and economical exploitation not only destroy the natural resources but perhaps also the African soul.
