The film revolves around four people who are interconnected by love triangles and business entanglements. Amos Munene (Lowry Odhiambo) is an ambitious MP in Meru who seeks to rise to the pinnacle of power in the country. Kenzo (Emo Rugene) is a young thug who is out to seek revenge against Amos for an unforgivable evil he committed in the past. Esther (Lizz Njagah) is Lowry's wife. She crosses paths with Kenzo and ends up igniting a romantic flame that reveals the true nature of her husband. Sammy (Conrad Makeni) is Lowry's faithful handy man, a cog in Lowry's political scheming, who is struggling to build a new life after the death of his wife.

Veve begins on a slightly sketchy note as it introduces its characters one by one. But as soon as the relationships between the characters are defined, the movie acquires a bundle of explosive energy that boils down to a delightful mix of mind games and thrilling action sequences. The movies integration of miraa politics in the storyline is worth a thumbs-up and moreover its realistic depiction of rural traditions when handling communal business. Conrad's performance as Sammy won the applause of the audience as he emulated a typically bossy right wing man with little regard for social status?

Summary for official catalogues

VEVE follows the lives of multiple characters trying to find themselves in a world of political intrigue, revenge, love and longings for success complemented by the background of the thriving yet unregulated veve business. Amos, an ambitious politician, is running for another term as Maua MP whilst facing his opponent Wadu in the extension of his veve empire. His wife Esther discovers the true nature of his affairs and seeks solace in Kenzo, a conflicted young man out to seek vengeance for his father's death. Sammy, Amos' right hand man, has to choose between being loyal to his work and being a caring father to his 12-year-old son Kago. Maua's Veve Farmers want to farm a union to force Amos to pay decent prices for their veve. Clint, a hedonistic wannabe documentary filmmaker meddles to far, blind of the dangers he is putting himself and others into. All are in search of purpose not knowing, that their destinies are entwined in more ways than they imagin
