After the international condemnation of the notorious anti-gay bill, commonly known as the "Kill the Gay bill", by a court ruling a sense of relief was given to the LGBTI community and its advocates. Unfortunately it also ignited the wrath of the public.
IMPUNITY depicts the government's endeavours to disenfranchise the LGBTI community while the masses take the law into their own hands. Thus leaving the LGBTI community out-of-pocket in terms of food, housing and healthcare. Vulnerable and often losing their lives at the hands of the angry mob.
