Lukumi is an Afro futurist Dub Opera set in post-apocalypse Turtle Island in 2167, 150 years after WWIII. Widespread meltdown of nuclear power plants – due to global environmental degradation – made the surface of the earth uninhabitable. A group of freedom fighters called the Ohosi Mino live underground, where they are hunted by The One World Army. Having access to ancient knowledges, the Ahosi Mino must send a Lukumi on a vision quest to find humanity's redemption or to die trying.
