After Suzy's former best friend from a drowning accident, Suzy knows something isn't right. Franny was the best swimmer Suzy ever knew. She embarks on this incredible journey and learns about life, death, and love.
This is a tremendously evocative movie performed by an outstanding cast. The movie deals with a number of themes - political violence, fanaticism, family dynamics, and religion - in a story that grabs and keeps the audience's attention. What is more, this movie does not rely on flashy special effects to pad the story. Rather, the story is presented in a straight forward manner. What happened in Nairobi, Kenya, in 1998 is a matter of record. It was a disaster of immense proportions, with consequences that reverberate to this day. This story explores the human dimension of the disaster, without casting blame or scapegoating any one group. In this world grievances abound; every country has its gripes and war or threat of war is always present. The question is: what is the best way to resolve these conflicts? This movie suggests that violence is not the way.
