Synopsis by Sandra Brennan

A boy and his turtle provide the main story in this film which alternates between surrealism, comedy and graphically violent drama. The film does contain a very realistic circumcision scene which may be disturbing to some viewers. Mentse is a young boy. After his mother is burned to death in a murder, Mentse goes to a neighboring village where he is adopted. Totor, an adorable turtle, provides much comic action as the villagers fight for him.
