Summary
The Old Testament book of Genesis is given a new spin by relocating it in the West African nation of Mali and using a cast of African actors. Covering chapters 24, 25, 34, 37, and 38, it recounts the story of Esau whose birthright is stolen by his brother Jacob in exchange for a plate of beans. This allegorical tale combines an accurate interpretation of the biblical story with relevant allusions to African history and culture
