Abstract:Atang Mokoenya is an unemployed, aimless young man who lives in the slums of Johannesburg (South Africa). When his estranged father dies, Atang fulfills his father's last wishes and returns to his ancestral land of Lesotho, to bury him in the remote, mountainous village where his father was born. Stirred by memories of his youth, he falls in love with his childhood friend, Dineo, now a radiant young school teacher. Through her, Atang is drawn toward the mystical beauty and hardships of the people and land he had forgotten, and faces his own bittersweet reckoning. [Abstract reproduced from dvd-video]
