Storyline

Tanyaradzwa (Kudakwashe Maradzika) is an intelligent, outgoing girl from a rich, loving family. Life seems perfect until one night, during dinner, her nine-month secret is revealed with the birth of a boy. Feeling betrayed, her parents dredge out old skeletons and take out their frustration on each other. Unable to bear the guilt of destroying her family, Tanya flees to find the baby's father, no-good playboy, Marlon. Her only friend is Marlon's tough-talking cousin Ajira, who encourages her to sell her body, but not her soul, to survive. Family, friendship, loyalty and social morality show their true colors during this kaleidoscopic journey of a naive, desperate and too-young mother Written by Cape Town International Film Festival

credible and rather well done
26 May 2012 | by thesiouxfallskidSee all my reviews

Never seen anything before from (of all places) Zimbabwe, a country of which I know virtually nothing, so it was interesting at least from that standpoint. The plot summary on IMDb is a good synopsis on the story, which while nothing special does seem to do a good job of depicting the difficulties of someone in her situation. I give it a thumbs up on direction, acting, editing, and sound. Good choice for lead actress. Though the film may seem rather rough around the edges, life itself tends to be more rough around the edges than we generally see in films. So if you are in the mood for something different, maybe something from Africa, this film may be a good choice. According to the DVD notes this film won 2 Africa Movie Academy Awards (AMAA), best upcoming actress and best cinematography.
