We are in the Ngorongoro district in Tanzania, one of the world’s most popular safari locations. Here we meet three Maasais, Simon, Elisabeth, and Samuel, each of them with a different angle on dealing with development. During one year, we follow their lives through intimate and personal portraits, where they reflect on their situation. "Masai on the Move" is a poetic and provocative portrait of indigenous people in the modern world. Their land, and with it, the foundation for their existence, is vanishing. Get an insight into their thoughts on divorce, global warming, and development, where development is as much a threat as a solution. Through the meeting with Simon, Elisabeth, and Samuel we are confronted with our habitual conceptions on indigenous people. There are no Maasais jumping for tourists in the sundown in this film, but three people living in the same world as the rest of us.
