Set and filmed on location in Harrare, Zimbabwe, this magical, surprising romantic comedy presents an odd love triangle between a young man new to the city, a beautiful gangster's moll, and a tipsy but well-meaning guardian angel. The story centers around UK, a young fellow who leaves his home to live in sophisticated Harrare and work as a personal courier for his uncle, a famous pop star. One day, UK receives a visit from the jukwa, or family guardian spirit, a rather boozy female visage who prickles UK's conscience and encourages him to get a real job and start sending money to his family back home. UK listens and begins working as a nightclub waiter. It is there that the youth meets and falls in love with Sofi, the lovely moll. One night UK saves Sofi from a masher. Unfortunately, he ends up knocked unconscious. When he finally awakens he finds Sofi's lovely arms around him and blissfully UK asks for her hand. Serious about his proposal, he visits her father. Unfortunately, the old man states that Sofi's dowry is a new stereo. The jukwa shows up to warn UK that he is about to embark upon a dangerous life path and encourages the youth to go home, but UK will not listen and this causes the headstrong youth untold grief until he finally learns that a jukwa is always right. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
