Summary George and Esther struggle to raise a family in Africa's largest slum. Both are HIV positive but in a way that doesn't count in this doc. HIV has become normal and that's how George and Esther deal with it. This film is rather about love in the middle of a war-torn slum. A film about being African in today's Africa and how, at the lowest denominator, people deal with hardship and can still find life a joy. Citizen Oketch does not demand we pity George's family but rather it throws a potent and refreshing light on human resilience
