This is an entertaining, atmospherically shot comedy drama about Mwas, a country boy who sets off to Nairobi to become an actor. Inevitably he is soon struggling for survival in the slums of the city. Adopted by the charismatic Oti, a small time car thief Mwas pursues his dream of stardom while being drawn further into the city’s violent underworld. A fun, absorbing cocktail of Kenyan street life stirred by a fine central performance, this is a rare chance to catch a glimpse of life for young Kenyans told from the inside.
