A trilogy of short films shot by and about African women made to enlighten and break stereotypes surrounding womenhood across Africa. "Uno's World" presents the disintegration of a young single mother's escapist lifestyle when she is confronted with the inescapable responsibilities of childbirth. "Hang Time" centers its focus on a young, poor, but talented West African basketball player whose desperation to wear the right shoes to impress an American basketball scout ends in tragedy. "Raya" leads the viewer through the dilemmas of a young mother from Cape Town's gangland.
