Abstract:Filmmaker Dumisani Phakathi returns from a white suburb to his old neighbourhood in Phiri, Soweto (Johannesburg, South Africa). With a camera on his shoulder, he engages with friends to discuss relationships, sex and love. Against the backdrop of unemployment and poverty we meet various real-life characters from the street. Strong characters like Phumla and Timothy expose their emotions as they talk intimately about the realities of their street and the choices they have been forced to make. It 's a rock and roll journey that reveals the gaps between everyday life and the AIDS education campaigns that often talk past the very people they are supposed to address. It is also the recognition of the people's will to survive in the age of AIDS. [Abstract reproduced from dvd-video]
