However, the story doesn't stop there. It's a tale of resilience, grit and ultimate triumph as she is now one of the biggest business ladies in Kigali,” he said. The dancehall singer mentioned that “This film is related to social challenges that are faced by everyone, especially young people in the hustle for jobs or start-up capital. It’s a problem that even ourselves have been through in this business.” He added: “The film inspires young people to believe in themselves, no matter the situation. And a call to action to end the normalization of abuse, manipulation and violence especially in work places.” “When we say end normalization of abuse, manipulation and violence, we are not only talking about just physical abuse; sexual harassment or a beating. We also talk about manipulation such as working excess hours, late payments, lack of contracts, safety at work, health insurances, appreciations, use of offensive language and other unhealthy work behaviors that are either practiced by superiors over subordinates and amongst workmates.” ALSO READ: Juggling acting and hospitality: The story of Umukonyine About the production crew The film was written and directed by Kagorora.
