A remarkable and otherworldly film from landlocked Lesotho. Mantoa an elderly woman with a rebel spirit, finds herself alone in opposing plans for a dam that would flood her village. As her life draws to a close, she is faced with the inevitable march of capitalism but her will to ignite a spirit of resistance and resilience in her community is strong. Tradition, politics and spiritual belief are at the heart of this extraordinarily powerful film.
