She is an ancestral messenger on an urgent mission. Her family is on the verge of tragedy and time is running out.
Ama is a highly intelligent and perceptive 12-year-old who becomes the medium for an ancestral prophecy. She finds a computer flobby disk by a lake in the English countryside and the information on the disc is startling. The ancestors reveal who she really is and set her on a “mission” to save her father, Babs from death and her brother, Joe from disaster during an upcoming fight. Will she succeed?
