A Ghost Story

My Brother's Keeper: A Ghost Story

When university student Opio is gunned down in cold blood and his girlfriend Masiko subsequently gang raped while staging a peaceful protest against the Head of State’s dismantling of the democratic government and naming himself “King”, his death and her subsequent trauma trigger a series of events that expose the ugly turmoil bubbling beneath the surface of their country’s mostly placid facade.

A re-interpretation of Francis Imbuga’s classic play “Betrayal in the City”, A Ghost Story moves the action from Imbuga’s fictional post-colonial nation of Kafira to the modern fictional nation of Kawanda, a thinly veiled critique of the current political climate of Uganda.
