Summary:

Set in a small village, four young girls face ritual "purification" decide to flee to the household of Colle Ardo Gallo Sy, a strong-willed woman who has managed to shield her own teenage daughter from the mutilation. Colle invokes the time-honored custom of moolaade (sanctuary) to protect the fugitives, and tension mounts as the ensuing stand-off pits Colle against village traditionalists. This endangers the prospective marriage of her daughter to the heir-apparent to the tribal throne.
