Synopsis: 

Set in the aftermath of the violence that erupted following Kenya’s 2007 elections, this tremendously moving film follows the attempts of a widow and an ex-gang member to move on. Something Necessary elucidates the essential value of forgiveness, and the ways in which every one of us can seek dignity in the face of despair.
