Golfer Ajene Jabari’s life is far removed from the hopelessness and depravity of Kibera, one of the most violent slums in Africa. With one swing of a golf club, his privileged life crosses paths with that of Moses, a Kiberan boy who is fascinated by Ajene’s golf ball. Ajene finds himself surprised by the difference between the child’s giving spirit and his own selfishness. While pursuing the source of the boy’s happiness, Ajene finds himself trapped within Kibera’s walls. Will he choose compassion or self-preservation? His decision will change two lives forever.
