Synopsis

Kaleche, a young woman, wanders into the otherworldly village of Kati Kati, not knowing who she is or how she got there. She finds a community of eccentrics led by the charismatic Thoma, to whom she is inexplicably drawn. As the residents begin to discover what is keeping them there, and the living and the dead ominously intersect, the film becomes a magical-realist reflection on the legacy of violence and survival in Kenya.
