The year is 1990. Tommy Omtita, a year out of school, is waiting to go to campus. Fifteen-year old Bonnie Omtita is trying to become both his secondary school's goalkeeper and top poet while keeping out of the way of the estate bully, Obash Kamwaro. Throw in their playful domestic help, Nandwa, their mad mongrel, Shiva, and the daft estate gatekeeper 'Kill Pat' and we are left gasping for breath as the mad mix of characters leaves us roaring in laughter, or in fits of giggles, sometimes with hands held over our mouths.
