Yirga

Yirga

The night before Yirga’s big move, she’s plagued by one problem. With her peace of mind at stake, she must take matters into her own hands.
"Yirga" stars Rekik Neway in her debut performance, and comedians Evelyn Ngugi and Filmon Yohannes. This short combines identity woes with honest humor to deliver a heartfelt film.
