SYNOPSIS This is the remarkable story of Jacob Mayiani, a Maasai man living in the US who returns to Kenya for the final ceremony completing his warriorhood —a ceremony that only happens once every 30 years. As filmmakers Blaze Nowara and Josh Morin explain, capturing the story was stepping into the unknown. The tribal elders would decide exactly when and where the ceremony would take place, decisions that could change at any time. ʼWe didn’t even know the day or location of the ceremony before we left.ʽ
