Kapila is born during a solar eclipse. That gives him destructive powers, according to traditional beliefs in Madagascar, and he is put in a cattle pen and left to be trampled to death. But Kapila is rescued by Raivo, who raises him as her own child in another village. Growing up embittered because of his injured leg, Kapila is prodded by the guidance of a mystical blind woman to return home to learn about his past. About Raymond Rajaonarivelo
