Told through multiple perspectives, How Beautiful We Were follows the generations-long struggle between Kosawa, an African village, and Pexton, an American oil company. Pexton promised the villagers prosperity, but instead, the company's operations have left the land polluted and infertile. With children getting sick—some even dying—and reparations ignored, the community decides to take matters into its own hands, no matter the cost. Although this story is fictional, it touches on real-world issues, such as environmental destruction and neocolonialism, that impact many West African nations.
