Set in 2116, Oliver, a Brit seeking asylum in the African Union is in detention. Here he pleads his case to Usman, an African border official, who isn’t fond of immigrants. What ensues is a battle of words and stories neither is truly prepared for.

Part of Africa Writes, a vibrant programme of events showcasing the best new writing from across the continent and the Diaspora.
