The film takes place during a normal day in the Ugandan capital of Kampala in the province of Gulu. For three people however, this day will not be an ordinary one. Mary, who works in the house of an upper class lady, faces serious difficulties when she has no choice but to pay a bribe to save her sister from the clutches of the police. 12-year-old Olweny, a former child soldier, leaves the rehabilitation center to return to his parent’s village, destroyed by the war. And break-dancer Armstrong has to put together a performance due to take place that same evening.
