Is written, produced & directed by Tresor Ilunga Mukuna, Executive Producer Marius Van Straaten

Cape Town is also known as the ‘Mother City’, but for those living on the streets the perceptions are not the same…

Refugee film maker reveals Cape Town´s injustices: “Tresor Ilunga Mukuna arrived in Cape Town penniless, clutching little more than his dream of becoming a filmmaker. When the young Congolese became homeless for a brief time, he quickly learnt the Mother City holds little nurture for those on the streets — an experience that inspired his first film…” (Leanne Farish, BIG ISSUE South Africa)
