Set in a small Ghanaian town surrounded by a looming landfill site that is tipping garbage into the sea, this is a story of grief. Two boys, Sowah and Okai, struggle to accept the loss of their older brother during a fishing expedition. Okai, who is only eight years old, is convinced his brother’s spirit is still out there. Tsutsue, which means “olden times”, was the first sub-Saharan short selected to compete in Cannes. .
