Summary
This program visits the world of the traditional African healer, the nganga. Beyond viruses and bacteria, many believe there are evil spells, and the program shows how ngangas fight the sorcery that is thought to cause illness. The patients include a government official and a schoolteacher; the ngangas, like the patients, are Christians; the filmmaker and narrator is a white Belgian priest
