ISHEMA LAURELS 1.10.23.jpeg

Ishema follows a 15-year-old boy named Emmanuel who discovers that his mother was raped by his father and that he is the product of that rape. His father was Hutu, the side that killed the Tutsis during the genocide. As he begins to embrace both the reality of his circumstances and his ability to choose his own path, he sees that many other children suffer in silence from the same issues of trauma and self-acceptance.
