It’s New Year’s Eve in Atteridgeville, and Lefa is on the cusp of major change. Accepted into university to study botany, he’s about to leave the Pretoria township that has been his home—if only his deadbeat father will come through with his school fees. The easy life is on the horizon, but he and his best friend, an albino would-be gangster, Papi, need to first find a way to navigate the difficult life at home. With hints of stoner films like High School and Friday, this distinctly South African tale rings universal as Lefa and Papi come of age and leave boyhood behind. In Sotho-Tswana with English subtitles. This film contains sexual references and drug use.
