Description

Iheukwu, a reincarnation of his grandfather, Ikedinobi, who was a powerful medicine man in his time, was born with supernatural powers. When the rate of crime, atrocities and killing of innocent people by unknown evil doers reached its fullest in their village called Umuaku; that includes the appearance of a strange tiger in broad daylight which terrorized the community for a long time. The village priest consulted the oracles for a solution and the gods revealed to him that a single leaf from an electrifying mysterious tree called ‘Anunuebe ’ has the power to liberate Umuaku people from the hands of evil ones. But then, going to Anunuebe tree to obtain its leaf is a deadly mission, because no human being had ever visited the mysterious tree and returned alive. The tree stood alone in a very remote uninhabitable area, and it does not tolerate any living thing close to it. The gods chose Iheukwu among other young men in Umuaku to embark on the deadly mission to Anunuebe tree. Those behind the atrocities would be apprehended if Iheukwu visits Anunuebe and returns alive; but if he didn't make it, the village of Umuaku will face more doom. 'MYSTERY UNDER THE SUN' narrates how it all happened in the 18th and 19th centuries, before and during the arrival of Western Missionaries in Umuaku, a village in the eastern part of present-day Nigeria.
