Synopsis by Jinko Labitag

Before the Angolan Civil War breaks out, Walter Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine) decides to immigrate to America, leaving his wife Esther (Zainab Jah) and his young daughter Sylvia (Jayme Lawson) behind. It takes 17 years before they reunite in New York City to build a new life together—Walter is now a weathered taxicab driver, Esther a devout Catholic, and Sylvia a teenager. Essentially strangers, the three find it challenging to live in Walter’s small one-bedroom apartment. Soon, conflict begins to rear its ugly head. Written and directed by Ekwa Msangi.
