STORYLINE



A place on the Cape Flats in 2009: A society challenged by gang violence and drug abuse but with people involved that want to make a difference. We follow four characters representing four generations (childhood, youth, adulthood and senior) through their neighborhood. They see their surroundings out of different angles and find themselves in different situations. But they all wish for better, for a brighter future. You can feel that people want to do better but they are very often trapped in a circle of poverty that is hard to breach. The frustration of the citizens of THE DORP finds expression in a violent clash with the Police, one of the biggest community uprisings against the authorities in the area since Apartheid has ended.
