In Hoodoo Love, Toulou, a young Black woman has fled the cotton fields with dreams of becoming a renowned blues singer on the famous Beale Street. She quickly falls hard for a blues man, the harmonica-playing, guitar-strumming, itinerant musician, Ace Of Spades who comes and goes without remorse or guilt, openly admitting to having lovers in every town where he plays. In Toulou, he finds a comfort of sorts and a bit of musical inspiration.
Wanting to know what it feels like to have a man stick around for her for once in her life, Toulou seeks the aid of her next-door neighbor, Candylady, who is adept at hoodoo (i.e. voodoo). Toulou literally wants to cast a spell on her man to bind him to her so that she can have a piece of Ace forever. – FOR MATURE AUDIENCES
