An awesome local movie with international appeal
23 October 2006 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie and wish that everyone who lives in South Africa and the rest of the world were mandated to view it because the overriding theme of xenophobia always rears it's head especially when issues like crime and poverty come to the fore.

Most South Africans have short memories. Whether it was 200 years ago with the 1820 settlers or just 5 years ago the majority of white South Africans originally came to this land filled with opportunity when their land of birth could not afford them this right.

This story is a story of the human spirit and a story of when you have a momentary connection with another human it does not necessarily mean that they will see it as you do.
