Jahmil X.T. Qubeka’s latest film gives voice to marginalized and disenfranchised youth in South Africa today who are struggling with issues of identity, sexuality and gender-based violence while trying to figure out their place in an ever-changing world. The film chronicles the journey of four friends, each with personal traumas and uncertain futures, who on the last day of their high school career, embark on a road trip to a legendary Xhosa ancestors portal. A blend of 1980s genre tropes, this coming-of-age film not only explores the depths of teen angst, but also captures the unquenchable zest and promise of youth.

In English and Xhosa with English subtitles.
