Through three stories set in and around the city of Kigali, the film tackles the themes of paternity and its power, and its effect on women, children and society. Zaninka, a masseuse who is barely making ends meet in the COVID economy, grieves the loss of her teenage son. Mukobwa is deeply conflicted about being an organ donor to save her ailing father’s life, and young Kadogo tries as best he can to resist the life of crime that his cruel and violent father is training him for. The film is a long overdue inquiry into the ostensibly sacred bonds of contemporary patriarchal culture.
In Kinyarwanda with English subtitles. (Contains disturbing scenes.)
