John Trengove's unsettling and often suffocating South African drama - shortlisted for Best Foreign Language Film at this year's Oscars - sees old ways clash uncomfortably with new, as rich city boy Kwanda (Niza Jay Ncoyini) is sent up into the mountains to take part in a traditional initiation ritual designed to make him a man. He's bullied and singled out both for his privileged social status and rumoured sexuality, while the mentor who's supposed to be looking out for him, Nakhane Toure's Xolani, is grappling with internal struggles of his own. Xolani is having a secret affair with married childhood friend and fellow mentor Vija (Bongile Mantsai), but the intimacy he craves and the future he dreams about appear painfully out of reach.
