Sometimes good intentions are simply not good enough.

Through intimate portraits of two Kenyans battling to save their homes from large-scale development organisations, the film presents a unique opportunity to experience foreign aid through the eyes of the people it is intended to benefit.

Interweaving meditative portraits of its characters, and with a broad scope and intimate style, the film portrays gripping stories of human perseverance and suggests that the answers for Africa lie in the resilience of its people.
