Twelve-year-old Josephine has always been surrounded by her clamorous Kenyan family. But today she is home alone for the first time. The silence is harder for her than she thought.
The young teenager Josie grows up in a house with a lively family where the door is never closed. There is always a lot of hubbub, banging on doors, a TV playing and a big brother coming by to tease her. She does not like the bustle or noise at all. When one day she happens to be home alone for the first time, she cautiously looks around with new eyes. She finally has everything to herself. But perhaps it is a bit too quiet now. The title of this debut is Swahili for 'silence'.
