Abstract:The Muzas are a Zimbabwean family running a granite import company from their home of 14 years in the United States. Sean Muza, the heir apparent to the Muza Granite empire, decides to spend this year's summer vacation in Zimbabwe with his brothers Curtis and T-Bone. This decision follows disagreements with his father Mr. Muza, which could not be resolved by his mother Mrs Muza. In Zimbabwe, Sean meets Christine Moyana and decides to marry her following a very brief courtship. Sean recruits his two metropolitan brothers and their uncle, Sekuru Magaya, as accomplices on his quest to marry Christine. The movie 'Lobala' is an account of the day on which the Muza boys cross town to the Moyana residence in Chitungwiza to do everything necessary for the fulfilment of the cultural wedding process known as 'lobola'. The Moyanas are a Zimbabwean family living in Chitungwiza. Mr. Moyana lives with his wife Amai Christine and their two daughters Christine and Vimbai. Mr. Moyana's oldest son William is not generally considered a part of the family; he does not live at home, is not productively employed like everybody else, and he is not invited to family gatherings such as Christine's lobola ceremony (which has never stopped him from making his presence felt).
