Synopsis Apartheid is falling apart in South Africa in the early 90s. But segregation remains: law claims, on the grounds of the Old Testament and the purest colonial exploitation, that the black majority have no rights and have been born to serve the white minority. Madiba and Sipho are only thirteen and black; sometimes they go out of their shanty town and take a look at the white world of mansions, wide, clean streets and luxury shop windows. And one day, they see a dead man falling off a train and along with him they find two objects which will seal their fate: a camcorder for Madiba and a gun for Sipho. Madiba captures images of his world, the poverty and hopes of his race, and also the white girl who fights injustice. Sipho snorts glue, steals, fights and plays Russian roulette.
