*When the Kenyan government promises free education for all, 84 year old Kimani Maruge (Oliver Litondo) makes his way to a remote primary school to get himself an education. An old Mau Mau warrior, he once fought for the liberation of his country, now he must fight for his right to learn. Director Justin Chadwick’s new feature starring Naomie Harris as a sympathetic school teacher is full of vitality and humour. A true story of the power of education and the shocking untold history of British colonial rule in Kenya.
