Twitter Capsule: Some story beats are sadly familiar, but this streetside Ethiopian drama conveys them with nuance and piquant detail.

VOR:   Rare to evoke the virtues and tolls of conscience so fully, and to capture the sights and sounds of a non-Western city without tilting into exoticism. No mold-breaker, but valuable.
