90 min.

Kibera, located in the centre of Nairobi, Kenya, is the largest slum in Africa. We are following people who have transformed their hard experiences into meaningful activities as well as people who represent the ordinary life in the slum. They have one thing in common – they are trying to transform their home into a better place to live. Our characters are connected by Don – a young photographer who is trying to depict Kibera in another form. The main part of the film takes place against the background of the 2017 Kenyan General Elections. We had the chance to follow our characters within this period and see how their lives were affected by events preceding the elections, elections itself and the post election violence.
