Lured from his home village of Ndotsheni with the hope of building a bigger, more fruitful life for himself, Absalom finds himself caught between the rock and hard place that many young men in Johannesburg struggle to overcome: with few economic opportunities or advantages, he struggles to make ends meet. Caving into social pressure from his peers, Absalom chooses what looks like an easier road only to find it has trapped him in tragic circumstances. His father's son, he owns up to his part in his crime and pays the consequences—not only the lost of his life, but everything that comes with it: loss of future, family and hope.
