Now he wants to rule them through their chief who has neglected their traditions and customs because of schnapps he gets to drink but the black monkey, who happens to be the native doctor has stood up in a battle to see who’s god or gods are strong and whoever god or gods wins religion declared as the official religion of the kingdom.
Who wins this battle? Can the black monkey turn the white man into a white monkey? This is a movie of African origin and a movie for all those who believe in the liberation of Africa from mental slavery.
