Delivering potent social messages through a deceptively cheery style of stop-motion animation, this animated feature from South Africa tells the story of a jobless writer toiling diligently on what he hopes will be a great novel defining his nation. The grim realities of his Johannesburg surroundings, however, soon exert a much more profound influence. Starring the voices of Jo Day, Phillip Mathebula, and writer/director Michael J. Rix. 78 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo. Filmed in English.
