Synopsis
Vuyo, a business student, returns to the mine not to begin a career but to discover more about his father - a man who died underground and whose last wish was to educate his son so he would never be subjected to the same way of life. Vuyo begins a new education in a world still trumping the traditions of old South Africa. He winds up with the toughest of this tribe, the deep-earth miners, who are desperately proud of their trade and increasingly unsettled by the fact that diminishing gold deposits threaten to end their livelihoods and traditions. When ex-con and miner Suto appeals to Vuyo for help in convincing the workers to combine redundancy payments and buy their own mine, Vuyo is forced to decide where his loyalties lie - with these men and the memory of his father, or with himself. And will this step toward liberation upset or appease the dark spirit of the mine that has claimed so many lives?
