“በህግ ከሄደች በቅሎዬ ያለ ህግ የሄደች ጭብጦዬ...... ” 'This is magic realism at its best,' Filmuforia.co.uk In Ethiopia, “kolo temari” (wandering student) Gobeze is caught red handed and in bed with Aleme, the wife of the temperamental landlord Gonite. Neighbours halt the ensuing fight and an elder binds together the two men’s clothes, symbolically chaining them together in the traditional judicial process of “Atse Sirat” and tells them to stand trial in the Queen’s court. Meanwhile, with the sudden death of the Emperor Minilik, Queen of Kings, Zewditu Minilik, is crowned Queen. Enchained during their long journey, the two men traverse a number of challenges including keeping each other safe so that the experienced litigator Gonite and the inexperienced student Gobeze can stand trial before the new ruler, Queen Zewditu, and be vindicated.
