Synopsis

Musa is the story of an uncompromising strong princess in a village in the North West of Cameroon who places her love interest over tradition. The man in question is a nomad of Fulani origin. To her royal family, this is not just a matter of priority but a disrespect of long-standing traditions, and must be stopped. As the family makes desperate attempts to reverse the situation, the heir apparent to the Throne is allegedly killed by the Princess’ boyfriend and the family and the entire village is thrown into disarray. For her father, the Chief, someone has to pay for the loss of his heir and a new heir is needed.
