Short Description: When his father dies following a ghastly bus accident, Asa, an only son, must take on the role of provider for his mother and three sisters. Still jobless more than four years after university graduation, he must take desperate measures to ensure the survival of the family in a country where corruption has crumbled infrastructure and extinguished employment opportunities.

Asa, like his fellow citizens, has no ammunition against the state governor, who is depriving citizens of their livelihood by catering more to the good of his pocket than the duties of his office. He surrounds himself with a horde of bodyguards and police that kill at a whim. With the judiciary in his pocket, the governor gives off an aura of invincibility.

Faced with the choice of surviving through nefarious means or succumbing to a life that can lead only to starvation for himself at a dangerous crossroad, torn between choices that will change the course of his life forever.

Based on true events, The Land That Shivers is an emotionally intense story of survival that becomes an uplifting tale of the power of tenacity and the victory of the human spirit.
