"A spirited testament to the power of creativity - not only as a source of strength and joy, but as a way to access buried emotions." – Sheri Linden, The Hollywood Reporter
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 Eswatini 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 the transformative power of storytelling.
