Ngoma said they took all their time and Energy in the production process to avoid flopping like other locals who thinks film production is all about having a  camera.

The movie targets the youths doing tertiary education and it is more to do with social life experienced at the college campus.

“It is majored on a first year student who was coming from a rich background and played around with different girls and other sorts of immoralities until he got infected with the Human Immune Virus (H.I.V) making everything to turn round on him” narrates Ngoma.

“The main message that we are trying to give out is about how one can get infected or avoid getting infected with the deadly virus and inside the film, there are some good actions depicting how one can contract of fully avoid the virus,” he added.

Ngoma told Nyasa Times that the movie is different from others since it comprises of strictly well trained actors and actresses hence the need for Malawians to purchase it and judge by themselves.

“Those featured are only those who are well trained, knows how to translate a script and their given characters and we never took on board amateurs,” he said.

“People need to buy and watch this film because unlike other movie, this one is well organised, well scripted and well produced ..the people will love it because it was worked on by the right team,” confidently challenged Ngoma.

The main actors in the play are Kelvin Maxwell Ngoma who is me, Pempho Zingunde, Chisomo Kamwendo, Morton Msowoya and our friend Sara Phiri’s late brother Charles Jere.
