SUPA MODO SYNOPSIS
Set in the village of Maweni, Supa Modo is a movie about a little girl who suffers from a terminal disease.
The type that isn’t going to end well. Knowing this, her mother decides to take her back home, so she can spend her last days surrounded by love.
But sitting still and being surrounded is not what Jo – the girl – really wants. In her head, she’s a super hero – and eventually, her family decides to make her last saving-the-world dreams come true.
The script is gripping and moving at the same time. It – and the actors – manage to come off as completely believable and fantastical simultaneously. I’m trying to not spoil the best parts, but it is pretty hard not to, and fortunately I’m not that type of girl.
Just like many nine-year-olds, Jo loves superheroes, and when we meet her for the first time she (and her ward mates) are watching a Kung Fu film, narrated by one Mike (Johnson Fish Chege), a local VJ. In her fantasy world, Jo is a superhero, inspired by her action figure, Supa Modo.
It is from this premise that her teenage sister Mwix (Nyawara Ndambia) gets inspiration to make Jo’s last days memorable. She starts creating scenarios in which Jo has to use superpowers to do things as simple as opening a jar of jam oras complicated as fighting goons robbing a shop. Slowly, the whole village gets involved in the plan all this without Jo’s and their mother’s (Katheryn (Marrianne Nungo)) knowledge.
