Synopsis

Kena and Ziki, two college students awaiting their exam results, don’t want to fall into the traditions assigned to women in their conservative community, and cannot wait to explore the world and pursue their chosen careers. Although both their fathers are competing against one another in Nairobi’s local elections the two are drawn to each other and quickly fall in love. However, with homosexuality being illegal in Kenya and the two young women fearing rejection from the families, they face the struggle of choosing between safety and their relationship. Set against a wonderful backdrop of colourful settings and costumes, with a complex and empathetic script, this is a vital story that deals with a wide variety of themes such as growing up, community and LGBTQ+ representation.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
