He makes a living by selling western action films, he dramatically acts and portrays most of the action figures in his films in order to entice his customers. He is an aspiring actor and when he comes across a group of actors from Nairobi performing in his town, he asks one of them to help him jump start his acting career. But in return he is asked to give ksh1000 approximately USD10 in order for him to be cast in one of the plays. He can only afford ksh500 and is told to take the other kshs 500 with him to the National theatre in Nairobi. He is very excited and after receiving some money from his mother he embarks on his journey to Nairobi with a brief stop over in his town to bade his friends goodbye. He meets his cousin (a gang leader) who gives Mwas an expensive radio system and some money to take to Khanji electronic shop in downtown Nairobi.
After making his way to Nairobi, he quickly learns that there is more to Nairobi than just opportunities and glamour. On the first day, Mwas loses everything he has to Nairobi thugs and is left stranded and confused especially because he knows no one. He gets arrested and even spends a day in jail. In a twist of events, he meets a Nairobi crook who becomes a close friend and takes him into his criminal gang. He slowly gets into crime while trying to make his acting dreams come true. He finds himself struggling and juggling the two separate worlds. – Wikipedia
