English

In Nairobi, a housemaid is stopped by the police simply because she has « the wrong name ». She tries to appeal to the officer’s common sense.

In an era when violence is met increasingly by violence by State and non-State actors alike, and where ordinary civilians are most often the casualties, ASHA is the story of a woman who attempts to forge a path out of this cycle.
