TOK TOKKIE

TOK TOKKIE

Cape Town. Night time. We are a lost soul, a ghost, unsure of who we are. No one can see us, until we meet Louis, a desperate demon possessing the body of a 14-year old boy. He has stolen ghosts, which demons need in order to keep their human bodies, from the demon-run ghost trade and is making a break for it. The city’s ghost population is disappearing, plunging the world of both demons and ghosts into turmoil. Blamed for the shortage and pursued from all sides by the ghost trade’s Freak Police, Louis has no choice but to team up with the most unlikely partners: The Black Cross, the city’s only, under-funded and disorganized ghost welfare unit, a group of human misfits who have taken on the task of saving lost souls. With them, Louis begins to unravel the mystery of where Cape Town’s ghosts are really going, slowly discovering that we, the ghost we play, as well as Louis’s own past, may both hold the key to the mystery.
