Haunted by a tragic childhood accident, Chala's whole life has been moulded by guilt and secrets. After the death of her stepfather, who took his own secrets to the grave, Chala re-evaluates her life and volunteers at a Kenyan orphanage, where she gets caught up in the turmoil of the post-election violence that took over a thousand lives in 2008. But, although she can walk away from Kenya, she cannot walk away from herself... With a poignant insight into Kenya's recent crisis, Yellow Room is a drama that explores the power of secrets to run, and ruin, our lives.
