Coming of Age
South Africa, Germany, Lesotho / 2015 / 63'
A deep friendship unites Lefa and Senate, two girls from Ha Sekake, a minuscule village in the mountains in the Kingdom of Lesotho in South Africa. However, one day Senate must leave to study in the city and Lefa too, once she has overcome her sadness due to the departure of her friend, must in her turn decide what to do with her life. The brief summer of youth is coming to an end and it is now time to step into the world of adulthood.
