The Doll's House

A young African man has come of age. As part of his rites of passage into manhood, his grandfather takes him to the heart of a sacred desert to tell him a story that each man is told and only told once. It is the story of the time Dream visited Earth and fell in love with a human woman. He pursued her and she relented, her city was destroyed and she fled from him. Ultimately rejecting him, he exacted a terrible revenge.
