    • Synopsis
    • Tanzanite is a female-centric thriller, and an irreverent Afrofuturistic critique of the current state of affairs in Nairobi. Tanzanite is about East Africa, the politics, the culture, the future of its people and the need to reclaim its own story.

      In a lawless Kenya, a decade after the 2030 great mineral war, little Adea, abducted child miner, finds a large tanzanite gem and triggers a violent chain reaction involving a traditional ninja gang and the eccentric and notoriously corrupt Mike Sankara, Minister of Culture. Will Machachari, the once famous zany detective, outsmart all of them and find the tanzanite before it destroys her community?
