Title:

 
The Grave Digger

The Grave Digger is a touching, human drama about Sekani, a fourteen year old boy who is forced to shoulder the burden of providing for his sick mother and younger brother by burying the afflicted patients of a Swaziland hospice.

Sekani?s monotonous, hopeless existence is spontaneously changed when he crosses paths with his soul mate, Abeo, who inspires him to look past the dreadfulness of his life and dream of a brighter day.

Sekani?s inspiration proves to be his heartbreak as he soon learns that no dreams are imminent in the desperate, fields of death that are Swaziland.
