“The Legacy of Rubies” is a 25 minutes 2D Animation, based on African stories or are playing in the African environment. It was made with the hope of inspiring other film makers of African origin to take bolder steps towards Animation.
Also, demonstratively defying the indignations shown towards African animation, we are targeting international film festival, where films based on African stories or are playing in the African environment are either underrepresented or totally missing.

MFALME, a young forest boy is kidnapped and brought to a strange palace in a place called Airegin, with the claim that he is the blood son of the dying King Obankosi and the chosen successor to the throne.
Not just that, he is given a mandatory assignment which he has to fulfill before he can either accept or reject their offer. So, accompanied by the little palace boy with whom he struck up a friendship, he is forced on a journey he least reckoned with.
