In Angola in the late 1980s, a time of war, there are those who feel that the Marxist-orientated elite has allowed itself to be corrupted by nepotism and the worst kind of rampant capitalism. One day, a building in Kinaxixi Square collapses unexpectedly, harming no-one. An ancient African water spirit has returned to reclaim the land.
