Originating from a workshop led by Tom Tykwer (Perfume, The International, Run Lola Run), this disarmingly gentle debut from Ghanaian-Kenyan director Essuman combines supernatural myth and the hard-scrabble realities of big-city Nairobi, as a teenage lad performs seven tasks to save his (apparently) curse-stricken dad. The real magic, however, is in the script which intelligently explores a dizzyingly wide range of pressing issues, all within the most accessibly economic of packages.
