Tatu is a contemporary take on the classic African epic adventure story, a fast-paced action drama centered around the conflict arising from a mother’s quest to have a child and all the complications that followed.
In Tatu, a mother gives birth to a child who is destined to give her life up for her people on her 21st birthday. To avert this, she gives her child over to a priest in order to help her escape from this destiny. The high priest of the village is not too thrilled about this decision and sets out on a quest to bring back the child – Tatu.

In those silent two minutes your eyes are introduced to the visual feast that is the cinematography of the film.
