When eight-year-old Shula (Mulubwa) turns up alone and unannounced in a Zambian village the locals are suspicious. A minor incident escalates into a full-blown witch trial, during which she is found guilty and sentenced to life on a state-run witch camp. There she is tethered to a long white ribbon and told that if she tries to run away she will be transformed into a goat. As the days pass, Shula begins to settle into her new community, but a threat looms on the horizon. Soon she is forced to make a difficult decision: whether to resign herself to life on the camp or take a risk for the sake of freedom.
