About the Drama: Chima and his group could not hide the everyday tragic story. The sudden state of emergency declared by this disease lit a fire of zeal to their cold body. What is this fire? What brought about this sudden disappearance of men who are keeping widows and widows keeping children to the mercy of the devil? Should they keep silent until they all die off? Should he be helping young ones to roll out this before it touches their eyebrow? What conclusion was finally reached? These and many more form the dramatic conflict in this play. For me, I put into perspective, the event leading to the battle or contest of which the title was drawn from, several parts of this drama portrays vivid dramatic images of which you can bear witness with me. Look on. NOTES Stories in this drama evoked sympathy in my heart and I chose to put it into writing. I am grateful to my reality. It is modern and suits the problem facing not only my country but also of the world. Written in memory of my friend who fought to roll out the problems caused by HIV/AIDS in Africa, but he never finished the race , for he surrendered his last breadth in 2003. What a sad climax to such a loving and caring friend.
