A man (Emmanuel Diaman) is plagued by a reoccurring hallucination of a woman coming after him with a knife. Instead of seeing a psychiatrist, he consults the local witch doctor about his trouble. He dreams of a returning stranger with a similar vision. The man still has these problems when he finds a girlfriend, but after digging deep into his psyche he remembers a long-suppressed childhood incident. His mother had once caught him with a girl and scolded him with the warning that girls were dangerous.
