520 |aShot in Botswana's Moremi village with its awesome landscapes in 2016 , this film is mainly about a leading village elder, John Lelatlhego and his entanglement in the troubles of a young quarrelsome couple. John was an illiterate teenager in the 1970's, when he first went to work underground in the South African mines. Now computer literate, and retired, since 2014, as a Human Resources Administrator, John is the Little Chief or head of his part of Moremi, a minister of the African Baptist Full Gospel Church, the patriarch of an extended family, a big farmer, and a much sought after go-between in family and marital negotiations. The public roles John now plays, with his fine, trained sense of hierarchy in administration, entangle him in murky yet scandalous affairs. He gets caught in conflicting loyalties, bitterly dividing families, his bishop's and his cousin's. The filmfollows the testing of botsadi parenthood and the give-and-take between generations on very different occasions from the great and national patriotic celebration for Botswana's 50th anniversary, to intimate moments of gossip, church preaching and court hearings.
