Description

Twelve-year-old Lwito is visually disabled and lives with her brother Joel in a village. Lwito has always been told that she cannot go to school because of her disability. Joel teaches Lwito everything he learns from school. A new school teacher arrives in the village and he is impressed by Lwito’s intelligence and tries to get her admitted to school. The school’s headmaster does not believe in inclusive education and refuses to listen. The arrival of a music activist with albinism motivates the villagers and the school teacher to join together and fight for the right to education of a girl child with a disability. Executive producer, producer and director: Musola Cathrine Kaseketi.
