Synopsis
At the beginning of the 20th century, the German colonial power attempted to wipe out the Namibian Herero tribe. Some of them survived and, as a mark of triumph, adopted the dress style of their enemies. 22-year-old designer McBride Kavari wants to modernise this costume, which has been worn with pride to this day, thereby incurring the wrath of the tribe elders.
