This poetic rollercoaster ride chronicles Ugandan youth reclaiming their right to
a voice by bringing village bonfire traditions to an urban setting.
One of these young freedom of speech activists is Ugly Emcee, a social worker
who also happens to be a grandson of the late dictator Idi Amin Dada.
Through an unsettling meta-layer, these eclectic individual portraits combine to form
a vision of a country trying to shed its past and build a more democratic reality,
despite the conservative forces latching on to power.
