When The Time Comes

Shot among the Samburu semi-nomadic tribe of Kenya, "When The Time Comes" portrays the tribe's relation to the ancestral and controversial practice that is female circumcision (Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting) and highlights the inter-generational debate that is taking place in their communities, allowing girls and women to fight for their rights, with the support of many men.
