The film follows Iddrisu, a talented medical student who returns to his home village after his father’s sudden death. Faced with a debt that could destroy his family, Iddrisu has no choice but to turn their farm and fortunes around. Over the course of a growing season, Iddrisu confronts both the tragedy and beauty of village life, and must finally choose between two very different futures. By focusing on the remarkable characters and challenges of a family of subsistence farmers, the film brings to life one young person’s journey to reconcile the lifestyle of his forefathers—taxing, beautiful, and disappearing—with his own interests and future. We see family dynamics play out – sometimes serious, sometimes playful. We see the contrasts between village-life tradition and city-life ambition. We see gender politics, tired hierarchies, dorm room romance, and so much more that brings out the universal; that inspires connection.

It is not a particularly good week for limited releases with lots of films earning mixed reviews, or worse. There are a few that are earning good reviews, like Catfight or Donald Cried, but none are likely to be box office hits. More...
