A group of Swazi orphan children collaborate to tell a story drawn from their collective memories. From their imaginations comes Liyana, a fictional girl who embarks on a journey to rescue her younger twin brothers. Through the character of Liyana the children allow themselves to delve into the dark places in their memories. Guided by anti-apartheid activist and renowned storyteller Gcina Mhlophe and brought to life through beautiful animation by artist Shofela Coker, Liyana refuses to give into bleakness, instead bringing forth a heart-warming tale of perseverance and inner strength from the imaginations of children.
