Dir. Sam Soko| 96min, 2020

“A compelling act of defiance; powerful and personal. As intimate as it is brave.”
—The Film Stage

Boniface “Softie” Mwangi has long fought injustices in his country as a political activist. Now he’s taking the next step by running for office in a regional Kenyan election. From the moment Boniface decides to run—telling his wife in passing, with a hesitant laugh—he responds to each challenge with optimism. But running a clean campaign against corrupt opponents becomes harder and harder to combat with idealism alone, and Boniface soon finds that challenging strong political dynasties is putting his family at risk. Should country really come before family, as he’s always believed?
