Purity is a twenty-one-year old University student whose last day is spent trapped in a room with her father, Professor Jairus Munanda, a 56 year old conservative man. Memories, stress, and fear spike a bitter exchange. The confrontation turns ugly as the innermost troubling bits of their emotional, mental and physical relationship are revealed. They must dig deep into their past which takes them back to a small village in Gilgil. Has Nairobi become so big that their dark secrets can be buried and lost forever? What do they learn when they exhume the remains of Mrs Munanda, Purity’s mother and the Profs Wife?
