Summary

Menged



A lot can happen on the long road to the weekly market in an Ethiopian village.
A father and his son follow all the good advice given to them …


Based on an old folk tale, this film is a parable about contemporary life in
Ethiopia. Director Daniel Taye Workou: "The people our heroes meet along
the way represent all kinds of traditional ways of thinking, providing us with
some surprising takes on life."
