Tiyane is a high school junior with a promising future. He's a good student from a good family and he's rapidly becoming a soccer star. But he's also becoming an adult, and with adulthood comes responsibility that he may not be able to handle. Tiyane's tomcatting with Linda leads to unforseen consequences that may ruin his relationship with the girl he really loves, Juliet. Written by

This cautionary tale from Zimbabwe was funded in part by the UK and US governments and is basically intended to warn Zimbabwean youth of the dangers of unprotected sex. It should be dull and preachy, but benefits from an earnest and attractive cast, especially Kasamba Mkumba and Leroy Gopal as the young star-crossed lovers. Football is only used metaphorically (the yellow card signifying a warning before you're sent off the field) and serves as bait to get the target audience interested. Nothing particularly new, but done extremely well.
