Synopsis:
Eric, Brandon and Buysile live at St Philomena, a home for abandoned children. Flanked in the middle of the ultra-urban jungle of Durban, "St Phils", their spiritual father, shape them and make them as real Men, "warriors" ready to face the life which seems to run away from them. Brothers and sisters, but also foreigner for each other, they live together all year long, fight, and form an atypical family...
On the other side, there is the real family, the original one, pouring in their veins and tattooed on their skin, although it is often the cause of their troubles. During the holidays, they leave the city to return to their "true" familly in the village, trying to gain back the time ceaselessly lost...
A double life, a new identity for these 5-year-old "Warriors.
An intimate encounter, the inner journey of these teenagers, from their life in the ultra-urban city, to their roots, in their family's bush.
