Synopsis: A Swazi girl embarks on a dangerous quest to rescue her young twin brothers. This animated African tale is born in the imaginations of five orphaned children in Swaziland who collaborate to tell a story of perseverance drawn from their darkest memories and brightest dreams. Their fictional character’s journey is interwoven with poetic and observational documentary scenes to create a genre-defying celebration of collective storytelling.

“A unique hybrid wherein fact is projected through a prism of fiction as both a mechanism to educate outsiders and heal from within.” – Jared Mobarak, The Film Stage
