Zambian grandmother Joyce Sikota has lost all but one of her children to Aids and was left alone and overwhelmed with seven grandchildren. Now, she is going through a healing process. With help of her only surviving daughter Annie and her visionary son-in-law Michael, she finds solace, hope and delight. Together, they turn Joyce‘s backyard into a vibrant home for a joyful group of orphaned girls and elderly ladies: Her village Liyoyelo – the Place of Hope.
When the partnership with a German school develops into a visiting programme, Liyoyelo becomes the meeting place of two different worlds.
