Description

The Remandee William has been remanded for 2 years in Lusaka Central Prison, awaiting conviction in a case in which he is charged with car theft and murder. After losing touch with his wife and daughter six months ago, he is now deeply concerned about his daughter’s safety. Unbeknownst to him his wife has secretly remarried in the hope that it would afford their child greater security, but William is convinced that their love must be saved. Given his undecided fate in prison and the uncertainty of his future William is eventually forced to make a tough decision: choosing between a secret affair with his ex-wife from who he has been so painfully separated, or the safety of their child.
