Tormented souls caught in limbo must face their demons and come to terms with their guilt in this poetic, unsettling film from Kenya.

A sort of No Man’s Land, the site is really a purgatory where each soul must confront past shame and regrets. A singularly inventive film that’s galaxies away from the more familiar representations of the African continent
