Thomas Gumede, Jafta Mamabolo and Tshepang Mohlomi
When a poor township boy with a deep, traditional fear of the water is offered a chance to escape the violence of his community through surfing, he is forced to choose between friendship and his dream.
16-year-old Otelo Buthelezi, his best friend, New Year, and his 12-year-old brother, Ntwe, are invited to the beach-house of their new friend, Tau Modise, wherein they step into a world previously closed to them. It is exactly the opposite of their township - a place under the constant and growing threat of political violence.
However, when Otelo proves to be a wizard on water it causes jealousy and resentment amongst his former friends. And as his prowess grows, tragic events take place that make this young surfer question his place in the world, and what action to take as he makes his way in the world.
