Young Musa is orphaned after a mysterious illness strikes his village in KwaZulu Natal. To help his grandmother, Musa sets out for Johannesburg with his father's last gift, a tribal drum, in search of work and his uncle. The journey confronts him with the stark realities of urban life, but his indomitable spirit never wavers; he returns with a truth and understanding his elders have failed to grasp.Written by
I just watched this incredible movie on Showtime on HD and then again on Showtime OnDemand. At the end it made me cry and feel happy at the same time. It had such an impact on me I can't believe it. I don't usually get emotionally involved with a movie but boy this one got me hooked. I won't give the plot away but it took me on a journey with this boy Musa and it never let up. It was stunning on high def, and the music was so moving. The subtitles were a little small but they only last for a few minutes at the very beginning and then it's all in English. The ensemble cast was great, the guy who played the truck drive was wonderful and the boy was fantastic. The movie made me feel sad and happy at the same time and now I want to tell other people to watch this movie. Watch this movie!! Watch this movie!!!
