Film synopsis:

Buhle is a rebellious teenager from the big city who is suspended from school after getting into a fight on the rugby field. His mother sends him into rural KZN for the duration of his suspension where he is disciplined by his grandfather through the rituals of rural life. He assimilates into Zulu culture, and rekindles his relationship with his absent father through indlamu, before he returns to the rugby field a changed man.
