DESCRIPTION

Jo is 9 years old and suffers from a terminal illness. When she returns from the hospital to her village, her only solace while she spends day after day shut up in her bedroom, is daydreaming about being a superhero. Her older sister can’t bear to see Jo depressed and having given up so, with help from the people of the village, she encourages her to believe in her superpowers, arranging various situations where Jo must intervene with her heroic actions. A moving goodbye and a salute to kindness, imagination and the power of spirit, this film, co-produced by Tom Tykwer, will be Kenya’s official submission for the foreign language Oscars category in 2019.
