—Once upon a time…
—That's how it was in the olden days…
The village is all ears: around the fire, at nightfall, the griotte is telling a story.
How they enjoy listening to her!
But Karaba, who also likes hearing stories, sends the fetiches to capture her.
Will the villagers ever know how the story ends?
This story is told in the film "Kirikou and the Men and Women".
Authors: Michel Ocelot, based on a story by Susie Morgenstern
