The year is 1990 when young, beautiful, and ambitious, Malaika is abducted on her way to the Primary School. Little did she kw that the Lord's Resistance Rebel Army operating in Northern Uganda was to divert her path to a gruesome journey. A journey that would see her compromise her moral values and open doors to conflicting soul-searching questions. However, it eventually leads her back to the place that she must return to in order to experience healing-to the war-torn home that she had run away from. Malaika is the story of a young African woman who is doing what she can to handle the rough life she has been cursed with. It is a story of pain, rebellion, and then acceptance.
