    One Man Dancing is based on the true story of a young Ugandan actor-dancer growing into artistic maturity during the murderous regime of dictator Idi Amin. It follows Charles from his youth in Uganda’s colonial villages, and through his work with artistic guru Robert Serumaga, which takes him on an eye-opening whirlwind international tour. Bounced from Africa to Europe to Canada and back again, Charles experiences bizarre and dangerous encounters with assassination, natural disaster, Idi Amin, and even the CIA. Based on the extraordinary life of a Ugandan actor, One Man Dancing is a political mystery, a story of risk and freedom, a harrowing tale of theatre and personal belief.
