Excellent indie film that looks into the \"other side\" of a portion of the diaspora that delves into the spiritual aspects of the connection between an African-American woman and the roots of her African ancestry. The drumming is absolutely spirit evoking! I was moved to tears!

Awesome movie! It gets to the real. Roots had to be concerned with waht the network thought, this movie doesn't hold back. The imagry is stunning and the performances moving.
