Sankofa is an Akan word that means,
"one must go back to the past in order
to know the future."  In the movie,
Mona, a contemporary model, is
possed by spirits lingering in the Cape
Coast Dungeon, in Ghana.  She then
travels to the past, where, as a house
servant called Shola, she is constantly
abused by the slave master.  Nunu, and
Afrikan-born field hand, and Shango,
Shola's West Indian Lover,
continuously rebel against the system
of slavery.  For Nunu, this means
direct conflict with her son, a mulatto
who benefits from the system as a
head slave.  Inspired by the
determination of Nunu and Shango to
defy the system, Shola finally takes
her fate into her own hands.
