An award winning a Tele-Drama on Aids (Prix Futura -youth category - 1991).
"It's Not Easy" was the first AIDS drama produced in Africa and tells the story of Suna, a young, married business executive with several girlfriends, who ignores warnings about AIDS.
Career, family and a nice girlfriend are all going well for Suna, a young African business executive. But everything changes when his newborn son is found to be infected with HIV - the deadly AIDS virus. It's Not Easy, but neighbors and co-workers learn to become allies, instead of enemies, in the battle for life. The movie is an anthem in Africa's struggle against the AIDS plague.
