Something Necessary

Director: Judy Kibinge

Something Necessary is a movie showing an intimate moment in the lives of Anne and Joseph. A woman struggling to rebuild her life after the civil unrest that swept over Kenya after the 2007 elections, claiming the life of her husband, the health of her son and leaving her home, on an isolated farm in the Kenyan countryside, in ruins. She now has nothing left, but her resolve to rebuild her life. On the other hand we have a young man, a troubled gang member, who participated in the countrywide violence. He is drawn to Anne and her farm, seemingly in search of redemption. Both Joseph and Anne need something that only the other can give to allow them to let go off the painful memories of their past and move on.
