Excerpts from the movie Chocolat
"One night, [the young apothecary] was invited to drink unrefined cacao with a pinch of chilli. The very same drink the ancient Maya used in their sacred ceremonies. The Maya believed cacao held the power to unlock hidden yearnings and reveal destinies. And so it was that George first saw Chitza.....The tribal elders tried to warn George about her. She was one of the wanderers. Her people moved with the North Wind from village to village dispensing ancient remedies never settling down."
"But still the clever North Wind was not satisfied. The Wind spoke to Vianne of towns yet to be visited. Friends in need, yet to be discovered. Battles yet to be fought."
