We Are All Birds Of Uganda - Hafsa Zayya

'You can't stop birds from flying, can you, Sameer? They go where they will...'

1960s UGANDA.

Present-day LONDON.

 

Sameer, a young high-flying lawyer, senses an emptiness in what he thought was the life of his dreams. Called back to his family home by an unexpected tragedy, Sameer begins to find the missing pieces of himself not in his future plans, but in a heritage he never knew.
