Eden is a junior financial controller at a lucrative mining firm in Toronto whose life takes an unexpected turn when her estranged father, a wealthy businessman and entrepreneur, requests her return to Zambia. During her visit, long-held family secrets and conflicts come to light, forcing her to confront manipulation, betrayal, and a heart-wrenching decision: continue her Western career or leave it behind for a cause she may no longer believe in. 

Copperbelt delves into the clash between personal aspirations and familial expectations, exploring the steep price one must pay for success and the lengths one will go to defend their rightful legacy—all in the name of family. 

Admission is FREE. All attendees must register to attend.
