Jimmy (Bilal Wanjau) is back from Kamiti prison and has to live at his son’s place – looking to start afresh and mend their relationship. Junior (Kena Muigai) doesn’t really like his father and the fact that the girl Junior’s dating (Patricia played by Mildred Sakina) might have some disturbing connection to his father’s past is a ticking time bomb. All this is set on the backdrop of – by chance (or not) key political assassinations / extra judicial killings connected to Jimmy’s past as a cop. What happens at dusk? What happens before the night unmasks their truths? Where will the guns point?
A thrilling drama written and directed by Kigondu Martin.
Confronted by the skeletons in her closet, Elida Wema finds herself haunted by secrets from her past; secrets she thought so well hidden. A battle that puts the ideals of love, betrayal, temptation and marriage to the test ensues. With it, a tough decision has to be made: whether to stay with her old husband who loves her so much but with whom she feels like a prisoner or to follow a stranger whom she barely knows but promises her freedom, freedom that comes at a great cost.
