Summary: Dr. Richard Werbner returns to Moremi village in the Tswapong hills of Botswana to follow-up on an earlier film "Séance reflections", with the subject of that previous film as research assistant. Discusses the idea of 'serti' which literally means shade, the idea that power, dignity and charisma are tied to the light in which a person is seen by others, especially ones ancestors. The controversial healer seen in the séance sequences of the previous film is accused of polluting the earth by wrongly mixing Christian and non-Christian and doing so for personal gain, as he defends his God-given mission for "the original way."
