Set in South Africa in 1989, against a backdrop of brewing conflict 16-year-old Otelo Buthelezi takes to the water for the first time. It is clear that this township kid was born to surf, but then tragedy strikes. On the day that Nelson Mandela is released from prison, Otelo is forced to choose between surfing success and justice. This insightful and entertaining film captures a turbulent time in the history of South Africa.
