On Vodou work and a portrait of Madame Nerval, well known Vodou mambo (priest.) Lush cinematography and long shots provide a portrait of Madame Nerval, a Haitian mambo, or priestess of Vodou. Considered an authority on the world of spirits that aid and
protect the living, Madame Nerval offers, for a fee, advice on how best to entreat one's personal spirits, offering therapeutic treatments and performing rituals that negotiate the balance between benign and malevolent
forces.
