This shockumentary is designed to evoke queasy stomachs and uneasy fascination with its contents, a la Mondo Cane. Based on a tour of 20 African countries, this film provides scenes of African male and female circumcision, pet massacres, scarification rituals and sexual practices, among other things. Viewer beware, as scenes in the film with anything shocking or revolting in them have a generous amount of close-ups.
