    This is a very powerful film that moved me and inspired me, I highly recommend seeing it in the theaters. The film is realistic and harsh but it is also hopeful in a real and not corny way. It is told from the perspective of a child who has a horrible childhood, Khomotso Manyaka does an incredible job with her role and I was extremely impressed by this young actress. I like the way the director shot the film and that he kept the camera close to the actors’ faces, I think the music in the film was great as well. Overall, this film has to be seen and noticed and I urge you to experience it.

    This is a drama about a mother and daughter relationship in today’s Africa, the film is directed by Oliver Schmitz and it stars Khomotso Manyaka, Keaobaka Makanyane andLerato Mvelase. I highly recommend seeing this film in the theaters. The film is very powerful and sometimes hard to watch, it stays true however to the cruelties of life in modern Africa. This film affected me deeply and I think it will afffect most people who will decide to see it. Khomotso Manyaka is extraordinary in this film and she performed her role in a very mature and honest way. I encourage everyone to see this film, you will be so grateful for the things that you have in your life after seeing this film.

    This is a drama directed by Oliver Schmitz and stars Khomotso Manyaka, Keaobaka Makanyane andLerato Mvelase. I really liked this film and i highly recommend seeing it in the theaters. The film is not easy to watch and it will definitely affect you one way or the other. what i really liked about this film, is that it is not only about AIDS and how ignorant people are about it, but it is also about how resilient humans are when they are faced with life-death situations. The film is acted very well and I was very impressed by Keaobaka Makanyane, who did a tremendous job with her role. Overall, it is a film to see this summer.

    This is a drama directed by Oliver Schmitz and starring Khomotso Manyaka, Keaobaka Makanyane and Lerato Mvelase. This film was extremely sad and powerful in the same time. It is so scary to see that even after 30 years of knowledge about AIDS, people are still ignorant and in denial about the disease, but one can not blame the people for being uneducated, i myself would blame the government. However, this film kind of blames the characters for being ignorant and I do not agree with this view. I felt that the filmmakers were looking at the characters from a high chair and judging them. The performances in the film are superb and i was very impressed with the young actress Khomotso Manyaka. Overall, this film is worth seeing but you might not agree with the filmmakers’ view of the subject.
