The chaotic reality of modern-day South Africa is explored through the eyes of its artists in this moving film. Born into different regions, classes and ethnicities, the artists—who range from a graffiti artist to an Afro-blues musician, a performance artist to an opera singer—reinterpret the chequered history of their country through their own creative languages. A revealing, deeply intimate portrait of a group of questing individuals still getting to grips with the legacy of apartheid.
