Young carjacker Lucky Kunene upgrades to become a real-estate crime boss, constantly evading both the law and the wrath of other local criminals. Director Ziman provides a political context for his narrative, acknowledging the continuing repercussions of apartheid on life in Johannesburg. This edgy and energetic film maintains a distinct South African voice with a winning performance from Rapulana Seiphemo at its centre. Followed by Q&A with producer Tendeka Matatu.
