In the tranquil setting of a small fishing community in the east coast of Zanzibar, a fire is raging in the hearts of three young individuals, and the entire community feels the heat. Surrender tells the story of Amri, a man trapped between the traditional role of the family man his father expects him to fulfill and his personal desire for Mashua, a local fisherman.
