Esther Jo Mbulawa
In 1970 South Africa, Babalwa is one of the leaders of an anti-apartheid activist youth movement that she leads alongside her childhood friend, Sipho. The story starts with a political meeting with the movement being held in Babalwa’s old high school. In the meeting, Sipho disrespects Babalwa in public. Frustrated, Babalwa decides to hold her tongue. After the meeting, two police officers overhear the group talking about taking action against the police and government. This leads to a confrontation.
