"Rise From the Cape Flats" is about how Shamier Magmoet, a Muslim man living in "the most dangerous community in South Africa," discovered the ocean just a short distance away from his community and how it changed his life. The film depicts how his diving in the "Great African Sea Forest," experiencing its "magical world of peace, beauty and life," devoid of the daily gunfire and violence he was used to, compelled him to protect it and inspire others to do the same. He now leads kids there to experience the ocean in order to both fall in love and want to protect it and learn to rise above difficulties with hard work.
