In a drought-prone, oil-rich area in Northern Kenya, a community’s ancestral land has been taken for oil extraction. When the women in the community — who traditionally have no say in things related to land — realise that the promise of jobs, money and reliable irrigation will never materialise, they rally together to protect their future and fight greed, patriarchy and corrupt politics.

This film is part of the programme ‘The Land Beneath Their Feet’.
