Homeless, alone, haunted by the shadows of the past, Mister Drainpipe is a beggar cast adrift on the streets of Addis Ababa. He ekes out life inside a concrete drain, atop a pile of rubbish.
His fragile world is about to implode.
A man who has lost everything, can still lose his soul.
By turns wrenching and savagely beautiful, this powerful, uplifting tale of life on African streets is set against the backdrop of recent events in Ethiopia. Mister Drainpipe’s struggles with homelessness, loss and mental illness frame a lucid window into an enigmatic, strife-torn country, where modernity and tradition collide in an ancient melting-pot of humanity.
Celebrate the triumph of the human spirit over terrible adversity. Taste hope.
