The tumultuous and precarious quest for BMX glory of two young men who escape the brutal child-soldier-controlled Zimbabwean regime only to find themselves as undesired refugees in the harsh, drug-ridden streets of Cape Town.

Caught in the deceptive ploys of politicos, drug lords, nefarious businessmen, and the love of a young American girl with dreams of her own, Terrence and Nkosi soon find their loyalty and friendship tested to the edge as they seek to make a new life in a world far more volatile and unpredictable than their humble country upbringing.
