Durant les 8 ans qu’a duré le règne de Idi Amin Dada, Ouganda a subi un déclin économique, une désintegration sociale, et de massive violations des droits humains. En 1978, la Commission Internationale de Juristes a estimé que plus de 100.000 Ougandais ont été tué sous le régime de la terreur de Amin Dada, certains pensent que c’est beaucoup plus encore.
Ce film fait le portrait de Raman, d’un survivant indien sous le régne de Idi Amin, qui subit un chantage de la petite amie, Becky, quand il vient réclamer les biens de son père.

The film chronicles several intertwined and complicated relationships that result from Idi Amin’s 1972 expulsion of Asians from Uganda.  Raman, an Indian survivor of Amin’s regime, is blackmailed by his Ugandan girlfriend (Becky) who wants a share of his father’s estate, to which he had assumed ownership. Drama unfolds when his daughter falls in love with Becky’s brother. The challenges of inter-racial relationships in a country polarized by deep mistrust on all sides come to the surface.

During the 8-year rule of Idi Amin Dada, Uganda was faced by economic decline, social disintegration, and massive human rights violations. In 1978, the International Commission of Jurists estimated that more than 100,000 Ugandans had been murdered during Amin’s reign of terror; some estimates place the figure much higher. The Ugandan focuses on Raman, an Indian survivor during Idi Amin’s regime, who is blackmailed by his girlfriend, Becky, when he claims his father’s property.
