Synopsis

Amongst the pythonic mountains of land-locked Lesotho, an 80-year-old widow Mantoa makes arrangements for her burial and prepares to die. But when plans to construct a reservoir threatens her village with forced resettlement, she finds a new will to live and ignites a collective spirit of defiance within her community. In these final dramatic moments of her life, Mantoa’s legend is forged and made eternal.
