A documentary by Christoph Ph. Nick
Zambian grandmother Joyce Sikota has lost all but one of her children to Aids and was left alone and overwhelmed with seven grandchildren. But now she is going through a healing process. With the help of her only surviving daughter Annie and her visionary son-in-law Michael, she finds solace, hope and delight. Together, they turn Joyce‘s backyard into a vibrant home for a joyful group of orphaned girls and elderly ladies: Her village Liyoyelo – the Place of Hope.
When the partnership with a German school develops into a visiting programme, Joyce‘s village Liyoyelo becomes the meeting place of two different worlds.
