Abstract:On Youth Day 2013, a national public holiday in South Africa commemorating the Soweto uprising of June 16th 1976, Emily, a young white woman living with her parents in Johannesburg's affluent northern suburbs - hangs herself from a tree in the family's large, well-tended back garden. A group of adolescent friends are shocked by the live-streamed suicide. A year after the tragedy, Jabz (played by the director) and his best friend September, two disillusioned new generation Zulu youths, members of the country's black nouveau riche, rummage through the sleepy manicured neighbourhoods in search of answers, drugs, distraction and salvation.
