Meresa Biom (Dancing Again) follows 9-year-old Hikmah, a passionate pupil and avid dancer living with her parents in Kumasi, Ghana. The film reflects on her experience of dealing with an injury to her eye while playing with friends, a year earlier. Through personal accounts from Hikmah, her family members and an Orbis-trained ophthalmologist, we hear how unnecessary delay impacted her vision. After the diagnosis and treatment of her traumatic cataract at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital Eye Clinic, she was prescribed spectacles. Hikmah is once again able to reach her full potential, and continues enjoying dancing with her friends. The film encourages seeking treatment immediately when noticing any abnormality with children’s, and more broadly adults’, eyes or vision.
