About the Film

In a conservative farming territory in South Africa that is obsessed with masculinity, Janno is different, secretive and emotionally frail. One day his religious mother brings home Pieter, a hardened street orphan, and asks Janno to accept this stranger as his brother. The two boys start a fight for power, heritage and parental love.
