Hanna is from Djibouti. On her Kerala trip, she befriends Louie and Aby. She helps them get a job in Djibouti. The duo flies to the African country with lots of dreams. But, what they experience is unpredictable problems. Unable to solve those issues, they try to escape from the place. What are those problems? Why can’t they be solved? Did they escape from that place? The rest of the film deal with this.

Star Performance

Amith Chakkalakkal and Jacob Gregory did their best to fit in the characters. Shagun Jaswal is okayish with her role.


Although we have seen a lot of films dealing with people working abroad and stuck with some issues, this one is a bit different. But, the film could have reached better if the screenplay had been better. Some of the characters are not well written, and some disappear half the way. Similarly, the dialogues are not impressive, consuming only time and nothing valid. The cinematography is decent, but the editing should have been better.

What’s There?

  • The performances are okayish

What’s Not There?

  • The characterization should have been better
  • The length of the film should have been trimmed


Though the plot is good, the execution and the editing are weak. With a story with a vast scope to explore things, the makers failed to bring it out. However, the film is watchable once!
