When a market trader becomes frustrated with the local police inspector who is more interested in lining his pockets than finding her missing daughter, a magic drink provided by the local alcohol brewer causes the trader and police inspector to switch bodies. Each has the opportunity to see how the other gender lives, with hilarious results and eye-opening perspectives. All the while, the search for the missing woman continues - will she be found in time?

It's all happening at the Crossroads!

Crossroads is part of the Media for Women's Rights (MEWOR) Project, an innovative three-year multimedia initiative launched by the African Women's Development and Communications Network (FEMNET) and Fahamu – Networks for Social Justice, in collaboration with partners across eastern and western Africa, to get people talking and acting on women's rights. Inspired by the African Union Protocol to the African Charter on Human and Peoples' Rights on the Rights of Women in Africa, a continental legal framework currently ratified by 26 African countries, the drama challenges nations to commit to the protocol and all people on the continent to make the rights of women a guaranteed reality.

Crossroads was the winner of the 2009 Radio for Peacebuilding Africa Awards.
