Blind Modeste convinces his 7-year-old companion Innocent to journey across Rwanda.

Weary of life in the bustling Rwandan border town of Rusumo, Modeste, a blind and sickly homeless man resolves to return to his home village of Kibuye on the far side of the country with the help of his companion, Innocent, a cheeky seven year-old street orphan. The journey starts well when they stumble upon a small amount of money but little Innocent inadvertently spends the cash purchasing a basket of thirty raw eggs during a mix up in a market melee. With their peculiar bounty of raw eggs the unlikely duo set off on an adventure of a life time along the rising road cresting atop the many rolling hills of Rwanda.

A beautiful, funny and inspirational story which catapults you into life in Rwanda and one remarkable journey.

Irish writer Eoin O'Connor has spent a number of years living in Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Having recently returned to Ireland, Eoin is currently working on two further feature scripts, a comedy, Family Remains, currently in development with Grand Pictures, Dublin, and a thriller set in Syria entitled Stolen, currently in development with Epos Films, Dublin.
