Nine-year-old Jo loves action films and dreams of being a superhero. Her biggest wish: to make a film and star in it. In her fantasy she can forget that she is terminally ill. When Jo’s sister can no longer bear seeing the cheerful girl spend her precious remaining time in bed, she encourages Jo to believe in her magic powers, and the whole village to make Jo’s dream a reality. This moving drama set in Kenya, co-produced by internationally-acclaimed German director Tom Tykwer, is about the power of imagination and an unusual means of saying farewell.
