Mona, a contemporary African American model is on a shoot at the infamous slave forts in Ghana, West Africa.

She becomes Shola, âhouse slaveâ on a sugar plantation; she is in love with Shango, a rebellious field slave and she idolizes Nunu, her surrogate mother. Shola too, learns rebellion when the master advances on her one too many times. After her trials, Shola returns to the present as Mona, deeply aware of her African roots.
