Kenya

A young girl is arranged to marry a man 30 years older than her, in exchange for precious cattle dowry which her family desperately needs. She stages a rebellion which sparks complete turmoil of her community and nature, and leads her down a path of further resistance and violence. A SONG THAT SLAYS is a tragedy which interweaves the passion and angst of man and nature, in order to explore the neurotic divide between female obligation and freedom.
