A somewhat regular village girl of exquisite beauty, Ngozi Akachi is haunted by the strange storm that ravages her village on the night of her birth, a story her mother would tell her repeatedly. After suffering various abuses by members of her family, she is sent to Lagos to live with an uncle. Once there she suffers cruelty from her aunt and forges a strange friendship with another girl, Tiffany Okoro, who comes from a different world all together. Embarking on a strange journey that eventually leads to England, she faces many trials until she finds her true voice.
