A woman wakes up in the grips of a nightmare: a spirit has possessed her. To be cured, she has to go to a healer who practises exorcisms. With an ethnological slant, the film concentrates on the healing ceremony, the N'Doep. The spirit has to make itself known. After a second and even crueller ceremony, the spirit appears: it is the spirit of a lion. The woman can go back to leading a normal life.
