From where no one see no evil, hears no evil and talk no evil

A “Sophie Mubvumbi Jayawardene” FILM
WRITTEN BY Sophie Mubvumbi Jayawardene


Sophie a woman troubled by dreams that capture the scariest side of death, dreams that occupied most of her nights and haunted her every walking life. Brought up in a village where no one speaks no evil, hear no evil and see no evil. That became the past, when Sophie migrated to The Land Of the White Cloud where the sun comes out first. Where there was no hunger, diseases nor ware.

Six months pregnant with twins Sophie found out she had contracted a deadly virus that invaded human immune through blood and leave them weak to their death. It was wiping lives in thousand and the world was filled with fear and there was no cure. A virus that challenge everything that sexual being stand for. No doctor was going to attend to her medical need. Her babies presumed contagious. Sophie found herself facing to give up her babies for termination, the lawmakers had ruled,

Into the dark changing world, a scared heart and a closet full of secretes
A new person imaged the one that could survive a world of fear, secretes, death, paranoia, isolation, discrimination and masks. Living like someone else and her new diary began. living dangerously. Where one was not suppose to be.

The fast lane of her life counting down her life last breaths.

What Sophie did not know, her dreams had come back to tell her a story. Only when the dead are present. As she lay on her death bed negotiating for her own life. Worthlessly, hopelessness and wish less, she heard a voice “I know you wish for a cure, show me your ingredience to the cure you may have faith in, your exit from the land of the dead” Would Sophie find where the cure lies?
