THAT the few Ugandan movies that have been released so far are modelled after Nigerian films is regrettable. Mariam Ndagire’s new film, Down This Road I Walk, the actress -cum-scriptwriter-cum-director’s first full length feature film is trying to change that, and with impressive results.
Catherine (Sheila Ategyeka) a student has dreams of marrying her high school sweet heart Fred (Jonan Kisibo). But her father Kateregga (Wawuyo Michael) has bigger plans. He is marrying her off and his choice of suitor happens to be the rich and famous, but troubled Charles Begumisa (Wycliff Luyombya), a man currently being hotly pursued by his relentless Ghanian ex-girlfriend from London. As if that is not bad enough, Begumisa’s mother (Mariam Ndagire) is hot on his case to get married fast. She wants a grand child.
Kateregga, insists on the marriage because he sees this as their only way out of their pauper life. Catherine’s mother (Jennifer Busuulwa) tries to make her daughter understand that African women don’t choose their husbands but Cathy is determined to stand her ground, fight for her life and to fulfill her child hood dreams
