A film that is heartbreaking and engaging in equal measure. Nine-year-old Jo (Stycie Waweru) has a terminal illness. When she returns to her village from hospital (where her room is adorned with pictures of superheroes and martial arts fighters), her caring older sister Mwix (Nyawara Ndambia) seeks to ease her final days by encouraging her to believe she has superpowers. With a much lower budget than Marvel’s Black Panther, Supa Modo shows that a hero can exist anywhere and be of any age.
