A typical 'chips and liver girl' navigate full-speed among their friends, their boyfriends, and the elderly men who pay for their studies and a modern life in luxury. For the university is not the only school for the thousands of young female students in the large city of Kampala, where everyone is fighting a daily struggle against everyone else in order to stay ahead. One of them is called Sonja, and even when she is going around with her 4-year-old son, she manages to twist the men around her little finger in a city that never sleeps. Romance means a man who can pay, poetry is passé and flowers are 'so last year'. Caroline Kamya and Boris Bertram portray a self-confident and individualistic generation of women in Uganda, which both mirrors a Western form of hedonism as well as continuing some cultural traditions, which have maybe never been as unshakably traditional as rumour has it.
