Veve (sheng for khat) is a movie on the khat business, a natural herb used as a stimulant and grown in Kenya.
Amos is a unscrupulous local politician in the Kenyan region of Maua, where the drug khat is farmed, known in the local slang as “veve”. Amos, too, is involved in the lucrative business and tries by all means to supplant a competitor. When Amos’ wife Esther discovers his crooked dealings, she rejects him and seeks solace in the arms of a younger man. And the fields of veve also have an unpleasant surprise in store: the farmers have organized themselves to force Amos to give them a fair price. With hand-held camera and a documentary style, the film portrays a world of corruption and social injustice.
