Maangamizi: The Ancient One
Asira (Barbara O.), an African-American doctor raised in Mississippi, accompanies her Tanzanian boyfriend to his homeland, to serve at a local hospital. There she meets Samehe (Amandina Lihamba), who is in psychiatric care due to recurring hallucinations and claims to be in contact with a mysterious shaman/spirit guide named Maangamizi (Mwanajuma Ali Hassan). Asira grows more interested in Samehe and, in turn, with East African spirituality, which helps her connect with her own roots.
