A preview screening of the debut feature film from BAFTA Cymru winning writer-director Welsh-Zambian Rungano Nyoni.
After a minor incident in her village, nine-year-old Shula is exiled to a travelling witch camp where she is told that if she tries to escape she will be transformed into a white goat. As she navigates through her new life, she must decide whether to accept her fate or risk the consequences of seeking freedom.

Before making her feature debut, she made several short films, including BAFTA Cymru winner The List, and the BAFTA-nominated Mwansa The Great. Rungano was supported from an early stage by Ffilm Cymru Wales through the BFI NETWORK Wales emerging talent fund.
