Kevin and Shenzi are connected by the unfortunate circumstances of their lives.

Forced to grow up too fast, they find themselves flung deeper into the intricacies of life when they are driven to the streets of Kampala, fighting for survival, begging for food, and ultimately becoming street smart.

By a stroke of luck, a white American family adopts Shenzi separating the bonded friends by distance and eventually time.
Still holding on to promises they made as children, Kevin sets his heart on reuniting with his best friend despite betrayal, loss and pain to an unexpected fortune, and the mentorship of a mysterious magnate, Ssaka.

From Nairobi to the Streets of Kampala; from the deathly gold mines of Congo to New York City lights; from Dubai’s pristine environ to the dazzling catwalk stage of Milan, The World is Ours is an epic journey of love, survival, pain, betrayal, violence and the unbreakable bond of those meant to chart a way through life together despite the circumstances.
