Thula was born in the Cameroonian village of Kosawa. It was a magical place, full of joy and tradition, until Pexton, an Americal oil company, came. Now children are dying. Oil pollutes the land, the water is toxic and the air full of soot. The men go to the city in search of help but never come back. Then, one day, the people of Kosawa decide to fight back. But this small victory will come at a steep price, one which generation after generation will have to pay. From the author of "Behold the Dreamers".
