Bupe, an academically bright but naive teen girl from a rural town, meets Mwamba, a confident but equally naive teen boy from the city – and sparks fly! Racing to learn everything they can about contraception without their conservative parents finding out, the couple faces confusing myths and stigmatisation as well as help from surprising allies. When Bupe misses her period they’re finally forced to face reality – and their parents.
A 13-part 2D animated mini-series for mobile distribution in Tanzania, Ethiopia, Madagascar, Malawi, Mozambique, Zambia and Uganda.
