NOTE OF THE PROGRAMMER
It’s a love story for the biggest part of the film, John wants to make money and wed Margaret. However, when Kasirivu (Raymond Rushabiro) loses the village tycoon Zeus’s (Jabal Ddungu) goods worth millions, they decide to settle the matter like gentlemen. Zues offers Kasirivu more cows and in return, he gives him Margret’s hand in marriage even before talking to her. Meanwhile, Margaret’s sister had left the village in search of a better life in the city, there she finds herself sharing a cubical with two girl prostitutes.
The first time producers put together a message of love, betrayal and HIV beautifully without forcing us to be sad and grumpy – Aids or HIV is never mentioned anywhere in the film.
