English

This is the unusual story of three dynamic lesbian women who are sangomas (traditional healers) in Soweto, South Africa.

Articulate and sympathetic, these women share their stories willingly. After leaving their husbands, two of the women explored their sexuality in relation to other women, because their dominant male ancestors instructed them to take wives.

The relationships with their ancestors, and the roles these ancestors play in their healing powers and sexuality, are the focal points in EVERYTHING MUST COME TO LIGHT.
