Short Description: Under a Darkling Sky dramatizes the life and times of Ken Saro-Wiwa, the renowned environmental activist-cum-writer, who placed his community far above his individual life, and eventually paid the supreme price by dying for his Ogoni people in the Niger Delta region of the West African nation-state called Nigeria.

Ken Saro-Wiwa was tried by a kangaroo  military tribunal, the Ogoni Civil Disturbances Tribunal, convicted and sentenced along with eight other Ogonis to be hanged on trumped-up charges of complicity and incitement of the deaths of four Ogoni elders in May, 1994
