"In 1968, South African visual artist Dumile Feni [Zwelidumile Geelbooi Mgxaji Mslaba Feni] went into exile, leaving behind his pregnant wife. Days before his planned homecoming in 1991, Feni died suddenly and tragically. Alongside his daughter, Marriam Diale, this documentary attempts to reclaim a man who was lost to his country, by inviting those who knew him to paint a portrait of the man and his life on three continents."--Container.
