The lives of young couple No Eyes and Diata are changed forever as each must accept sacrifice in the name of community, family and spiritual beliefs. A coming-of-age story told through African storytelling, African and Indian dance, and Brazilian and Asian combat styles, Kosi Dasa examines the values and cultures that bind a community and the divine implications therein.​
