“As the title implies, it is a story of doomed love, of two ‘star-crossed’ lovers, separated not by their families, but by the very circumstances of their lives.  It is also a story of a dangerous time, of a nation painfully finding its identity in a post-colonial age, saturated with corruption and with self-doubt, struggling to reconcile the old ways with the new.  And yet through it all runs a strange spirit of hope, for it is also a celebration of ordinary lives lived under impossible conditions.  Somehow, int eh midst of helplessness and decay, love can still flourish and flower.”
