In politically unstable Zimbabwe, a new constitution is being put together by the ruling party of strongman Robert Mugabe and the divided opposition. Two men are tasked with a mammoth mission to consult Zimbabweans across the country.

 

 

The unlikeliest of allies, Paul Mangwana of ZANU-PF and Douglas Mwonzora of opposition MDC-T, travel around the country holding mass meetings in what is supposed to be a highly democratic process of public consultation. But it will take a miracle to break down the rising tension between their parties and themselves, as they collaborate to find a solution to a growing political storm. Amidst death threats they soldier on, but will their mission be a success?
