If for some reason you don’t know what Nairobi Half Life is, watch the trailer below or read the summary:
The movie involves a young, aspiring actor from mashambani in Kenya who dreams of becoming a success in the big city. In pursuit of this and to the chagrin of his brother and parents, he makes his way to Nairobi: the city of opportunity.
He quickly understands why Nairobi is nicknamed Nairobbery as he is robbed of all his money and belongings and left alone in a city where he doesn’t know a soul. Luck, or the lack, of it brings him face to face with two groups of downtown crooks and he forms a friendship with a young small time gang leader who takes him in.
He is quickly drawn into a new world of theft and violence, even as he still tries to pursue his dream of becoming an actor. Keeping the two worlds separate proves to be a contest for him as he struggles to survive in this unknown world called Nairobi.
