Musekeweya: “New Dawn”
Our story begins at a point where the two villages of Bumanzi and Muhumuro in Rwanda co-exist relatively harmoniously. Behind closed doors, however, neighbours from either village tend to view the others suspiciously. The people of Bumanzi have more food because the soil on their hill is more fertile, and this has created animosity between the two villages.
Despite these tensions, two families living in the two separate villages have developed a very strong relationship over the years. The storyline follows their struggles to remain close when tensions escalate between the two villages and the Romeo and Juliet-style romance between a man and a woman living on the opposite hills.
