This new play dramatises the conflicts involved with personal and collective survival and renewal. Ida Bee, an African-American woman, takes her teenage son on a tedious journey back to their ancestral roots in the African kingdom of Idu. Their primary quest is to find the son's father who abandoned them in the USA. The Igbo ancestral symbol of manhood and personal achievement is carried with them on the mythical journey. The journey is accompanied by music, dance and the rich poetic lore of folk wisdom.
