Thando is a young Zulu boy living in rural KwaMashu, an informal settlement just outside of Durban. Having lost both his parents at a young age, he finds himself reluctantly sharing a roof with his grandmother who has an unfortunate tendency for boozing, grooving and throwing way too many house parties. Upset with the situation and eager to escape, Thando falls under the influence of his naughty neighbours, Moose and Thuko, who introduce him to a dangerous new habit. Driven by nostalgia for the days when his dad would take the train with him to the beach, our young protagonist finally decides to run away from home, seeking out the happy memories of his past and a new life in the city.
