Kenyan Movie Premier: Strata, Dec. 22 2013 @ Stedmark Gardens – Karen
When a criminal is gunned down, do we ever stop to ask ourselves how his life must have been?
When ZEAL is gunned down under mysterious circumstances, JAZZ, his fiancée of Asian descent is determined to get justice.
Her path crosses KUSH, the mixed race policeman on the case and a man who has always had an interest in her. He has concluded that Zeal was a criminal, killed in an inter gang turf war.
Then two women, BUNDE, a patient from a high cost sanatorium and SILK, a veiled mystery turn up at his funeral without explanation or apology.
Jazz stumbles on SHEBE, who connects some of the dots in Zeal’s life. Shebe was arguably Zeal’s closest friend and confidant.
Jazz digs deeper and finally discovers that Zeal was leading a far from normal double life, he was indeed a criminal.
Then Jazz finds herself the target of the same people who had Zeal killed. To keep alive Jazz has to expose these killers and bring them to justice . . . a task that will bring in contact with the criminal underworld and put her life on the line.
“Strata” is a multi racial movie that gives us insight into the rise in crime in Kenya today and the innovative and intriguing methods that desperate criminals use to avoid detection. “Strata” also gives us a glimpse into the cover-up tactics that law enforcers use to lead us down the wrong path.
“Strata” is story of crime and passion with wheels within wheels . . . that reveals the layers of our lives stemming from what may seem to the untrained eye as a simple gunning down of another notorious criminal on the streets of Nairobi.
