Nine-year-old Jo loves action films and dreams of being a superhero. Her greatest wish is to make a film herself and star in it. In her world of fantasy, she forgets that she is terminally ill. When Jo's sister can no longer bear seeing the cheerful girl spend her precious remaining time in bed, she encourages Jo to believe in her magic powers and calls on the whole village to help make Jo’s dream become a reality.

This touching drama by Kenyan filmmaker Likarion Wainaina was created as part of a master class hosted by the German-Kenyan production collective One Fine Day Films/Ginger Ink. It is about the power of imagination and an unusual way of saying farewell. (Berlinale)

“Supa Modo is literally a super hero picture, which never succumbs to over-sentimental farewell scenes. The super powers of this movie lie in its ability to believe that phantasy is all powerful and everlasting - unshakeable, even by death” (kino-zeit)
