“Call Me Kuchu” follows Uganda’s first openly gay man, David Kato, and retired Anglican Bishop Christopher Senyonjo as they work against the clock to defeat an “Anti-Homosexuality Bill,” inspired in part by American evangelical missionaries.
As they work to combat the Bill, which proposes death for HIV-positive gay men and prison for anyone who fails to turn in a known homosexual, they must also fight vicious persecution in their daily lives.[ Also Read: RMN Company Unveils Top Entertainment Stars ]
But no one is prepared for the brutal murder that shakes the movement to its core and sends shock waves around the world. “Call Me Kuchu” is stated to be a stirring portrait of human courage in the face of insurmountable odds.
