Ignorance Is Bliss Or Something Like That

“Mawe” is an exclamation in Rutooro that shows shock or surprise, but is also the story of two Ugandan women, who, over the course of a single life-changing conversation one afternoon explore the possibility that there are certain things they would rather get through life without knowing, and that their friendship may not survive.
