Photographer and activist Boniface “Softie” Mwangi prioritizes his family, country, and God, but not in that order. Determined to see an end to political corruption and the British imposed colonial-era tribalism, Softie has placed duty to country above all else. From the moment Boniface decides to run for office in a regional Kenyan election, he responds to each challenge with optimism. However, running a clean campaign against corrupt opponents is becoming increasingly dangerous for him and his family.
