The job of a gravedigger is an essential service, but it brings little money or respect in Djibouti. Guled is distraught when told that his wife Nasra – a woman as outgoing and vivid as he is reserved – will die without an operation costing the unimaginable sum of 5000 dollars. In desperation, he returns to his estranged mother’s village to beg for help. Khaled Ayderus’s deceptively simple story encompasses such topical subjects as the health crisis in Africa, the clash of generations and the impact of globalisation, but its central focus remains the power of love.
