Director Statement

This film speaks about my own experiences from childhood.According to patriarchal system,we always prapered two different meals;for the father and the rest of the family.
But father's plate was always delicious and everyone was after his plate.
Not because it's my own experiece but the system still exist in most of Tanzanian families that's why i decided to make this film.

With all said,i'm so eager to make more films now.
