Three stories of life in contemporary Uganda play out over the course of a single day in this drama. Olweny (Stephen Ocen) is a twelve-year-old boy who was forced into battle as a child soldier. Saved from his duties, Olweny was sent to a rehabilitation camp, and is now being returned to his parents, who live in a village scarred by the fighting. Elsewhere, Mary (Rehema Nanfuka) works as a domestic servant for a well-to-do family. Mary's life is thrown into chaos when her sister is taken captive by a corrupt police officer who demands a ransom for her safe return. And finally, Armstrong (Philip Buyi) is a promising young dancer whose breakdancing crew has organized a special performance. However, Armstrong's big moment in the spotlight might not happen after an old friend who has become an underworld kingpin makes some important demands. Imani was the first feature film from producer and director Caroline Kamya. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
