A documentary film on the struggle of a smallest tribe in Namibia fighting for the return of the skulls of their people taken by the Germans for racial science profiling after the genocide of 1904. It also demands the finding of these tests. This is while this tribe is launching a case to seek reparation from Germany. This is a story of the ordinary grassroots group taking on the mighty and powerful against all odds.
