Feature Film


11-year-old Themba lives with his mother Mandis and sister Nomtha in a narrow valley in the Eastern Cape. He loves football. Every free minute he plays with his best friend Sipho and dreams of Zidane, Maradonna or Andile Khumalo, the youngest star of the South African national team Bafana Bafana. But it is an infinitely long way from the traditional round hut in his small village to the world of professional footballers!
