In Namibia’s first ever LGBTQIA+ feature, George, a closeted, 20 something vendor spends  evenings at bars downing beers, stealthily on the prowl for potential hookups. After a chance meeting with Simeon, an openly gay city boy, they embark on a covert relationship. As secrets begin to unravel, they struggle to navigate their own internalized fears in a country rife with homophobia where same sex relations are still punishable by law. KAPANA is a heartwarming story of overcoming personal and societal prejudices in the pursuit of true love.
