Hillbrow, a hard-scrabble neighborhood in Johannesburg, South Africa, is home to countless street children. Here they beg outside stylish cafes, sleep under bridges in cardboard boxes, sniff glue to get high, and form alliances that are part friendship, part defense--against older bigger boys whom they fear. Johannesburg, a bustling, modern city of glittering skyscrapers and all the seductions of consumer culture, is home to a vast, affluent white populace. Apartheid's ironic legacy is that today the city attracts children from the poverty-stricken countryside, with magnetic force. It is in this setting that the kids discuss their lives, fears, and dreams, painting a picture of South Africa after Apartheid.
