Something Necessary is an intimate moment in the life on Anna, who is struggling to rebuild her life after the 2007 civil unrest of the Elections that claimed the life of her husband. Her sons’ health and the reality of been left in her home on an isolated farm in the Kenyan countryside in shattered pieces and ruins.

Ann, once a nurse, with a solid career, united one big happy loving family, she now has nothing to hold on to but her resolutions to rebuild her life. Joseph, a troubled young man and also a gang member, he participated in the 2007 violence that was countrywide is attracted and further drawn to Anne and her farm.

Astoundingly this is only seemingly in search of REDEMPTION.

Joseph and Anne need something that only the other can give to allow them to shed the painful memories of their past and move on. Both need each other – but will either of them find it?

Based on true life in KENYA
