Synopsis

Ghanaian-Kenyan filmmaker Hawa Essuman directs this drama set in Nairobi, the Kenyan capital. Samson Odhiambo stars as 14-year-old Abila, who lives with his parents in Kibera, the biggest slum in Nairobi. When his father suddenly falls ill, Abila sets out in search of a cure, and is given seven tasks by the witch doctor to lift the curse on his father's soul. Along with his best friend Shiku (Leila Dayan Opou), Abila journeys to the slums and mansions of his hometown as he sets about his quest, learning valuable lessons along the way.
