The story of Rwakifeera (literally meaning the stupid man) and his witty wife Bajaaja. Although the man lacked compassion, intelligence and skills, his witty and loving wife held the family together through famine, monsters and more to protect her husband and her nine children. It celebrates standing up for those who are not as privileged as us, including those who may not have a good head on their shoulders.
