He returns to his hometown to attend a funeral, where he has to face faces from his past. He meets Bismarck, a musician who wants to leave small-town life to pursue a musical dream. As they prepare to leave, Mila, a girl with whom Ben shares a complicated history, unexpectedly shows up at Benʼs house and asks him for a lift to Cape town.

A South African road trip movie filled with love, fun and spontaneous adventure, itʼs directed by Hendrik Cronje, who also stars.

According to Cronje, “‘Relatief jonk’ is a road trip film that explores the struggles of people in their late 20s. Are some people meant to be together? Do you give up on your dreams and settle for a “real” job? I donʼt think there is a right and wrong answer to any of these questions.

“The universal theme of oneʼs lifeʼs purpose is investigated through the characters, all having a laugh while relating to their issues of ‘maturity.’ Real life is messy.”

Also starring are Amalia Uys and Vilje Maritz.

Cronje has television experience, including in the popular SABC soapy “7de laan” (2007-2012), as Lukas, and recently as Clive in “G.I.L” on KykNet.

Her films include ‘Meisies wat fluit’ (2020), ‘Sy klink soos lente’ (2016), and ‘Sink’ (2015). Vilje Maritz is best known to TV audiences for his roles in “Binnelanders” (2009-2012), “High Rollers” (2013-2017), “Swartwater” (2016), “Bloedbroers” (2015-2016). Films include ‘Verraaiers’ (2013), ‘Hollywood in my huis’ (2014), ‘Die pro’ (2015), and ‘ʼn Man soos my pa‘ (2015).
