Children of the Mountain

Children of the Mountain

Essuman’s life collapses when her baby is born with disabilities. A yam-seller in the Accra market, she doesn’t have the money for surgery, so she turns to folk remedies. The same folk beliefs make her life harder, however, when she is blamed for her son’s condition. Yet it’s an old woman in her home village whose wise advice offers hope for her and her child.
