Synopsis

An African Christmas by Ifeoma Onyefulu

It's Christmas time, and Afam has decided to create and dance his own masquerade, just like the big celebratory Mmo (masquerades) which he sees performing at festivals. Each time he starts collecting things to make his costume, family preparations for Christmas - haircuts, visiting the tailor, a church service, a trip to their village - get in the way. But in the end, Afam performs the most beautiful masquerade ever!
