According to Jornal de Angola, on August 13 the feature film will arrive at ZAP Cinemas.

The film portrays the story of two young people who belong to different ethnic groups. The two decide to fight against the traditions that make it impossible for them to be together and live the love they feel for each other.

The executive production of the feature film counts with the signature of Sílvio Nascimento, who told Angop that the national cinema has been gaining quality.

"We came to reinforce that the Angolan cinema is alive, has quality and, most of the time, just needs patrons that can help us to produce more, represent more and live more of the art", he indicated.

Lélis Twevekamba, Evanilde Ferreira, Fernando Mailoge, Mariana António and Carlos Carvalho are part of the film's cast.

The production has the stamp of Mbanji Studios, and the executive production was the responsibility of Silvio Nascimento, Joel Benoliel and Allen Mamona.
