Guilt and unresolved grief over his Nigerian father's suicide, which Dennis witnessed as a young boy, really started to affect him when his ex-girlfriend, Asha, turned out to be pregnant with his child. The search for the source of his insecurity about fatherhood and his low self-esteem soon leads Dennis back to his father, whom his mother does not want to be reminded of. Desperate, he turns to an old friend of his father, an Ifa priest named Raffi, to put him out of his misery by means of a voodoo spell. The growing prospect of a reunion with his father in the spirit world provides Dennis with the necessary clarity regarding his mental problems and those of his paternal bloodline. Impeccably styled and infused with magical realism, this is a hauntingly emotional drama set in present-day Netherlands
