Barely a month has gone by since we reported that top kenyan actress Lizz Njagah was nominated for the best actress category at the sixth London Greek Film Festival, than do we receive news that she went ahead to win it.  Lizz Njagah starred in the movie "The return of lazarus" (2011); Return of Lazarus is a Greek road movie with a Kenyan touch.

Shot in Greece, its a movie about two brothers, Lazarus (Alexandros Koch) and Kiriakos (Nelson Lucas), set for a road trip in Maronia, Northern Greece, in order to find the mythical cave of the Cyclops where King Maron used to hide his wine. According to the myth if you drink from this wine you gain the eternal youth. Kiriakos wants to become young again in order to rejoin the Boy Scouts after they expelled him recently for life. Lazarus is trying to find himself after losing his job, his house while he still hopes to bring back his divorced wife, whom he still loves. On their journey they meet different people including King’ora (Lizz Njagah ), a Kenyan woman who works in a local hotel. Very soon sparks begin to fly between her and Kiriakos.
