Comrade Washington (Mbongeni Ngema), a black struggle activist, returns to South Africa. His mission: to work with convicts to create a musical play. The interwoven stories emerge all the way from the Lamontville rent strikes of 1983. Through personal testimony, song, and dance, the prisoners find resilience, liberation and forgiveness, with the forces of resistance being represented by the singer-activist named Soweto (Danica de la Rey). They face the cruel wrath of the prison authorities as the play comes together, culminating in a performance for a stunned audience of their oppressors. The inmates tell their stories, claim their history, and dance back their identity.
