trinidad+tobago film festival 2010 screening
Abu is a quiet and hardworking police intelligence officer who keeps to himself. Tamani is a young, rebellious artist just back from high school in the United States. When the two cross paths, Abu decides to help Tamani, who is searching for her mother, who disappeared in the US embassy bomb blast in Nairobi 10 years ago.
Unbeknownst to Tamani, her search for her mother churns up within Abu memories of Fareed, Abu’s best friend who died in the blast. Soon the facts about Tamani’s mother are revealed, as well as the story of Fareed’s involvement in the bomb blast. Everyone involved must learn how to forgive, deal with their own faith, and confront what they fear the most—the truth.
