Leaving Africa

In this heartwarming tale of friendship and strength, two 60-something women, Finnish Riitta and Ugandan Catherine, share a home in Uganda and a very close relationship. They spend evenings on their porch smoking, doing crossword puzzles and talking about their lives and challenges. But by day, they lead a revolutionary education project that provides sexual heath and equality education to both men and women in the surrounding community. Always operating under the threat of expulsion, their luck finally runs out when the officials threaten to cut off permits and funding, thus ending 25 years of their work and sending Riitta back to Finland.
