Speaking Tswana, dancing Pantsula and playing soccer are pretty normal things - except when you are the White son of a respected farmer in 1980s South Africa.Caught in the rip currents of apartheid, Erasmus struggles to find his place in a schoolMoreSpeaking Tswana, dancing Pantsula and playing soccer are pretty normal things - except when you are the White son of a respected farmer in 1980s South Africa.Caught in the rip currents of apartheid, Erasmus struggles to find his place in a school that expects him to play rugby, parents who condemn inter-racial relationships, and a justice system which crushes the hopes of equal rights at every turn. When his lifestyle threatens to tear his family apart and land him in prison, Erasmus is forced to make impossible choices to keep everyone else happy.Through it all he finds freedom on the soccer field, where he and his friends start their own team, and try to make a difference in a world that refuses to listen.
