THE STORY

The gig of his life. The fight of his life.

The Lucky Specials are a small-time cover band in a dusty mining town in southern Africa. Mandla (Oros Mampofu) works as a miner by day, but is passionate about playing guitar and dreams of making it big in the music industry. When tragedy strikes, Mandla, his friend (Sivenathi Mabuya) and the band must find the strength to make their dreams reality.
