Without a second’s hesitation, Mesi relieves her younger brother of the task of killing a cockerel, a ritual sacrifice that only men can make. When their mother dies, their grandmother blames her: by disobeying tradition, she has attracted the wrath of God on to the family. Unable to give meaning to her grandmother’s beliefs, the irreverent Mesi begins to interpret the ancient legends in her own way.
