A young Black South African girl who dreams of becoming a star takes part in a student rebellion against apartheid.

"Reflecting a strong music-video influence in its snappily edited dance numbers (which incorporate fantasy elements like a mock Oscar for its heroine), the film also has a sharply realistic strain. Its galvanizing opening images of young men on the run at dawn turn out to prefigure the firebombing of the high school that is central to the story." - The New York Times
