Unknown to Ricardo, the father he's never known has been released from prison. Farakhan, a reformed general in the 28, is back in his old neighbourhood, an intruder in 26 territory.

This film shows the gang and war life of the Cape Flats. We see opposing gang groups namely the 26 and the 28, with a score to settle..things turn a bit sour.
22 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

A young sovereign chess player Ricardo Galam born and raised in a community surrounded by violence and war of the Cape flats between two gangs, the 28 and 26. Raised by his grandmother with an unknown father who is released from prison and decides to start living a gang free life, turns his back on the 28 gang. Curiosity got the better of Ricardo and he ended joining the forces of the 26 gangs, got groomed by the commando of the group but like chess, life is about making choices and making a move, making a move determines the outcome.

For a low budgeted film, it turned out very well.With cliché moments here and there but surprises the view where they least expect it.
