    Synopsis

    A bitter logic lies in the fact that those whom society does not care to see are living by night. In downtown Freetown, Sierra Leone the streets of the city are covered in darkness. This is where a group of friends live. They each face enormous physical and psychological challenges. With no place to go but the bleak and sleepless streets of the capital city, they are condemned to a life of begging. Shado’man is a cinematic journey undertaken by the filmmaker together with the ‘Streetboys’ and the camera becomes a nucleus around which their life unfolds.
