Synopsis

Amongst the pythonic mountains of land-locked Lesotho, an 80-year-old widow winds up her
earthly affairs, makes arrangements for her burial and prepares to die.
But when her village is threatened with forced resettlement due to the construction of a
reservoir, she finds a new will to live and ignites a collective spirit of defiance within her
community. In the final dramatic moments of her life, Mantoa’s legend is forged and made
eternal.
