Set in the fabulous Ethiopian Highlands this is a delightful portrait of village life amongst subsistence farmers. Young Ephraim is left with his tyrannical uncle while his father looks for work. Alone in an unfamiliar world, Ephraim’s constant companion is his pet sheep, apparently destined for the pot. Simply told through the eyes of the boy, there’s more going on than initially appears. Though it’s a fiercely patriarchal society, it’s Ephraim’s lively grandmother Emama who reigns over the household. This charming story about growing up in a land where everyone is short of food has an undeniable ring of authenticity.
