Swaziland has the highest HIV/AIDS rate in the world and many people continue to die from having no access to clean water.

Matsanjeni is an intimate, virtual reality portrait of the people of Swaziland. The documentary is an invitation to travel with Sibusiso Shiba into a rural village and to experience the transformation of a community as they get access to clean water for the first time.
