The desire to uphold traditions is key to this breezy comedy of errors.

Though a gifted professional mourner, Max dreams of becoming a doctor. On a trip to Johannesburg, he is forced to weigh the expectations of his hometown against the temptations of the big city. 2004, South Africa, color, 35mm, in Tswana/Afrikaans/Zulu/English with English subtitles, 98 minutes.
