In 1975, when 18-year old Ruth imagined a country free of oppression, she could have never fathomed a Zimbabwe that would abuse its own, expel its brightest, and relegate women to second-class citizens.
In 2017, standing in a crowd during a military coup to oust dictator Robert Mugabe, Ruth bumps into her childhood best friend Jack and is forced to revisit her past with nostalgia and bitterness.
Teenage Ruth’s quest to become a freedom fighter is sparked by a love for country and a desire to defy societal expectations of what a girl could be and do. She becomes an informant in a shebeen, but her plans go awry and she finds herself in a training camp, across the border in newly liberated Mozambique. All her
beliefs are put to the test as the African society she was born into goes on to propagate the men of the movement while neglecting Ruth and the women cadres who birthed the nation.
While oscillating between the height of the liberation movement in the 1970s, and the dismal present in 2017, Ruth and Jack contemplate what it means to be Zimbabwean and to be free, not just as an African but as a black woman.
