The film tells the story of 14 year old Felix Xaba, who dreams of becoming a saxophonist like his late father, but his mother thinks jazz is the devil’s music, keeping his son from fulfilling her dream of him living a successful and respectable life, leaving poverty behind.
The winner of the Audience Choice at the Durban International Film Festival, Special Jury Prize at the Africa International Film Festival , Calabar, Best Children’s Film at the 36th Lucas International Film Festival, among others, is a particular “feel-good” film, which should give the whole family an opportunity to enjoy African cinema together.
