Having dealt in the controversial tradition of initiation in his short film, ‘Ibhokhwe,’ director John Trengove now delves deeper into South African masculinity through a profound study of the subject. This is an impressive film debut that lingers in the mind of audiences long after it ends.

Xolani, a lonely factory worker, joins the men of his community in the mountains of the Eastern Cape to initiate a group of teenage boys into manhood. When a defiant initiate from the city discovers his best kept secret, Xolani's entire existence begins to unravel.
