A 94-year-old Kenyan Grandmother with a fearless spirit must subdue malicious accusations of witchcraft that come from her own kin. Her grandson, Karisa, travels from the city to his rural home to investigate, and gradually discovers who sent the threatening letter and why. In order to overcome the imminent danger of the complaints, Karisa must navigate delicate family ties between his disputing aunties and uncles while honoring the love for his Grandmother.
