The difficulty Joffi faces in her first pregnancy is made worse by the petulant and selfish demands of her irate and uncompromising husband, Ekema. Things come to a head when Ekema wakes up one morning to a world very different from the one he went to sleep in.

Christa Eka Assam is a Cameroonian filmmaker who started her filmmaking career as an actress in 2006. After a couple of years as an actress, she made her first six-minute short film, Doormat, which was selected into the Durban Talent Campus in 2012, an opportunity which gave her a much-needed insight to the international world if filmmaking. Beleh is her second short film.
