Emmy winning filmmaker from Sierra Leone, Sorious Samura, has grown tired telling negative stories about Africa. He embarks on a journey with his best friend, Sierra Leone's most famous playwright, Charlie Haffner, to create an epic work of national theatre - a play to reclaim their country from negative media narratives and the damaging legacy of colonial rule.
