PORTUGUESE PREMIERE

Director Teboho Edkins comes back to the country where he grew up to follow the life of two teenage brothers and two teenage girls in the inhospitable mountains of Lesotho. This is a decisive moment for them... To embrace life as a shepherd, perpetuating family tradition or abandon the village, perhaps forever, to enrol in high school. The four of them face adulthood in a society where tradition, duty and obstinacy have a dominant role. (Sérgio Gomes)
