"This is the story of a crazy bunch of South Africans.
They are ambituous, progressive and positive
but also marked by a history of apartheid, mistrust and misunderstanding.
They are looking for their place and identity in an energetic and rough society
that has recently been bombed into an eclectic intercultural democracy."
