The Ugandan is a feature film about Raman, an Indian survivor of Idi Amin’s regime, who is blackmailed by his Ugandan girl friend (Becky) when he claims his father’s property. Drama unfolds when his daughter falls in love with Becky’s brother. In this riveting story of lies, love and xenophobia, we get a peak into the legacy of Idi Amin’s Uganda and the challenges of inter-racial relationships in a country where polarization has created a deep mistrust on all sides.
