Today, when many of those who witnessed the harshest times have passed away or left the town, the history, past and memories of the town are in the minds of the few people who still live there. Kasensero and its inhabitants have traveled similar paths; their lives have been shaped by all the experiences the town has been through. The images of their memories, the spoken words, and newspapers headlines will comprise this documentary where it seems that the history of this place can provide the answer to the complexity of its present and the future to come.
