Kare Kare Zvako - Mother's Day

Mother's Day is like nothing you've ever seen.
Drought has struck. Father pushes his wife away from the family dinner of termites. In anger, when mother challenges him, he digs a pit with a brutal purpose, but little does he suspect that Mother can
retaliate just as powerfully. Based on an old Shona folk tale and rendered as a musical celebrating a diversity of contemporaray Zimbabwean music, Mother's Day is the newest and most exciting motion picture development to come out of Zimbabwe.
