This movie tells a refreshing story of Dusi Canoe Marathon in South Africa, which entails the connection between real talent from Soweto and the Canoe champion from Joburg.
26 June 2017 | by jaxsparoSee all my reviews

This story takes you to a Canoe marathon played in South Africa. As the story is based on true events which provides it more depths to follow. The movie is centered on a Canoe champion, Steve from Joburg, whose love for this game connects him to a fella from Soweto, Duma.

As the Soweto friend knows the common life style of his friend from Joburg, but not vice-versa. This point starts in movie at some point, which finally unites them for Canoe marathon. This story starts weaving and enlights the everyday tough life in Soweto. "I am coming for you big man" dialogue and the scene by Zama gives you laugh and and also thought provoking for us in the current world.
