Ni Sisi portrays a typical Kenyan community: a harmonious muddle of tribes, intermarriages, and extended families who have lived and worked together all their lives. Then one day rumors begin to spread and suddenly mistrust takes hold. People are identified as belonging to a different tribe rather than by their identity as a person. With mistrust comes a sense of threat and fear, and old friends now turn on each other. In a matter of days, the bonds and alliances are severed just as it did in reality in 2008. They find themselves plunging into chaos, and it seems unstoppable and brutal. Is it possible to learn from old mistakes and has a once peaceful community another chance?
