Kaleche, a young amnesiac, wakes up in a hut, with no idea how she got there. She is greeted by a group of strangers. They tell her that she is dead and that this is Kati Kati, the afterlife. She senses a mutual attraction with group leader Thoma, who encourages Keleche to recollect her memories, while she helps him find the path to personal acceptance. The feature debut from Mbithi Masya, one third of Kenya’s acclaimed alternative house-funk trio Just a Band, boldly seeks answers to the country’s recent violent past.
