Abstract

This critically acclaimed, Oscar-winning film explores a moral dilemma in post-apartheid South Africa. After fleeing a murder scene and stealing a car, a young gang leader discovers a baby in the backseat. He tries to balance the responsibilities he feels toward the child and his gang, but the police and gang rivals threaten to derail his chosen paths.
