Based on the book by acclaimed author, Athol Fugard, and set amidst the sprawling Johannesburg townships, this deeply affecting film traces six days in the life of a ruthless young gang leader who shoots a woman outside her home and steals her car unaware, in his panic, that her baby is in the back seat. Pumping with the gritty energy of Zola’s ‘Kwaito’ music, ‘Tsotsi’ is an extraordinary portrait of third-world ghetto life.
