A COUNTRY TORN APART

A bizarre chapter in American history began in 1820 when a group of former slaves sailed from New York to West Africa. They hoped to discover a lost homeland, but instead found a land of secret societies, magico-religious Juju and cannibalism. The ex-slaves became masters in Liberia, but after decades of simmering tribal hatred, the pot boiled over in 1980.

Henry Roye, a descendent of American slaves, is in love with an African tribal woman named Konah Nambey. But when the Americo-Liberian president is assassinated by tribal enlisted men, Henry and Konah flee the chaos of Monrovia for the northern hinterlands. After full-blown civil war erupts, they must save their young son from the clutches of the village witch-woman and the warlord she supports.
