Obsessed with Jackie Chan and action films, nine-year-old Jo (Stycie Waweru) dreams of being a superhero—but time is not on her side. When the doctors reveal that she is terminally ill, Jo leaves the hospital and returns home to be with her mom and sister. While her mother insists that she stay inside and rest, her sister has different plans. With the entire village’s support, they decide to make dreams a reality and turn Jo into the superhero they know she is. The debut feature from Kenyan filmmaker Likarion Wainaina is an honest and inspiring story about the strength of young people in the face of adversity.
