Storyline

Yizo Yizo began as a controversial and popular TV drama about a Johannesburg, all-black high school. As addictive as a soap opera but as topical as a news magazine, the series portrays a young rape victim haunted by nightmares; the perpetrators adjusting to prison life while awaiting their trial; the politics of school budgetary and staffing cuts; an opportunistic teacher-student affair; and a teacher who cannot overcome cultural differences between herself and her students.
