A man realizes that his daughter’s terminal illness will soon take her life. As he grapples with the heartbreaking reality, his daughter sets on a mission to prove to him that according to her long-dead grandmother, death is not the end of life in African tradition. The man, who is Christian, struggles to understand what his daughter is saying, thinking she is too young to understand his pain. She thinks he is too Christian to see beyond what his faith has taught him. So father and daughter offer comfort to each other in the best way they know how, but neither Christianity nor African tradition offer easy answers.
