Comrade Washington, a black struggle activist, returns to South Africa. His mission: to work with convicts to create a musical play. Their 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. The forces of resistance are represented by singer-activist Soweto. They all face the cruel wrath of the prison authorities as the play comes together, and it culminates in a performance for a stunned audience of their oppressors. The inmates tell their stories, claim their history, and dance back their identity.
