I would love to make some American movies and get into that industry. At the moment, I have a foot in the door and I am starting to do that. I need to ride this wave while it is going. I want to come back and do more film. The South African film industry is budding and I don’t want to not be a part of it. It’s been my bread and butter all my life.”

En Afrique du Sud, dix ans après la fin de l'Apartheid, Sox Moraka (Tony Kgoroge), un jeune noir sappé comme un rappeur et à l'attitude décontractée, est fiancé à une fille blanche et vit dans un luxueux appartement du quartier blanc de Johannesburg, où il passe le plus clair de son temps à animer des émissions de clips vidéo. Souhaitant devenir une star de cinéma, il passe une audition pour jouer le rôle de Bra'Biza, un braqueur de voitures, mais on lui fait remarquer qu'il n'a pas le vécu nécessaire pour incarner un tel héros. Humilié par le réalisateur blanc qui le vire sans ménagement, Sox décide de se rendre dans les townships de Soweto afin d'appréhender au mieux son futur personnage, et même si pour cela il risque de tout perdre : le confort, la liberté, la vie.
