In a small village in Uganda, Kirabo has been raised by women: her grandmother, best friend, and aunts, but the absence of her mother follows her like a shadow. Seeking answers, Kirabo begins spending afternoons with a local witch, trading stories, learning about her birth mother and the strange force that is starting to stir inside herself. The witch explains that Kirabo has a streak of the “first woman”, an original way of being that has almost been lost. Kirabo embarks on a plight to reconcile her mysterious origins, and her desire to reconnect with her mother while honoring the family that raised her. Tradition and the promise of a different future collide as we follow Kirabo’s journey, bound in indigenous feminism and Ugandan folklore.
