Storyline



©
A late-night crime drama from Ethiopia: think Prime Suspect or Law & Order, Addis Ababa. Nishan, a young and enterprising woman, wants to leave Ethiopia to try her luck abroad. Her chances look good, since her father supports her financially and takes out a mortgage on the family house. But suddenly, important documents disappear, an antique gun appears, and Nishan’s fiancé changes in mysterious ways. Nishan tries everything to help her family, but soon she gets caught in a web of lies and danger looms ever closer...

With NISHAN MEDAL OF HONOR, Yidnekachew Shumete Desalegn reveals a new facet of his country’s currently booming film scene. It’s no plain, Nollywood-style thriller, but rather a tensely packed portrait of young Ethiopians from wealthy circumstances who want to emigrate, because they “can’t make it” any farther upward in their own land.
