YEFON: The Red Necklace
Young tribal girl, Yefon Labam, knows she’s different. During the 1950’s, in her central African village, women are uneducated and are expected to either work on farms or be one of many wives, but Yefon dares for more - she wants to learn how to read, even if looking at a book could mean her death. Although every one thinks she’s an abomination, including her mother and sisters, her father knows she’s destined for greater things.
When he is murdered, Yefon clings to the gift he gave her for inspiration - a red necklace. She soon realises that the necklace is no ordinary ornament, but a talisman crafted by the spirits. Yefon walks a dangerous path that could lead to her freedom... or her death.
