MOVIE: And the Kola Nut said No!
The other world of the Kola Nut
The other world is a deeper universe, just as real as the veins beneath the skin, good and bad spirits that sleep in all of us until they are awakened. Just like the drums contain a Kola Nut, the soul of the drum, raising its voice, when the drum gets beaten. Every one of us has a spirit that talks to us with the beating of the heart, if only we would hear.
