About the movie
Synopsis: A Czech NGO invited Sandra Kisić, a twenty-six-year old influencer of Bosnian origin, to come to Uganda. She spent ten days in and about the town of Kabale. Besides the local citizens, she was accompanied by a Dutch volunteer Roose de Boer who already was on her umpteenth mission. Sandra, on the other hand, saw poverty and technological backwardness for the first time in reality, not just on her cell phone that she practically did not put down. The director captures the clash of seemingly remote, yet equivalent worlds acing up global challenges as an impartial observer to emphasize numerous tragicomic paradoxes.
