Toronto International Film Festival

Director : Jahmil X.T. Qubeka / 118 min / South Africa | Germany

In the Great Karoo region of South Africa, a bandit, John Kepe, steals livestock and resources from white farmers in order to empower his oppressed communities in rural areas. General Botha, a World War II veteran goes on an epic manhunt to capture Kepe through the mountains. Evading all the attempts made to capture him over a decade, John Kepe emerges both as an enigma to his pursuers and a mythological symbol of resistance.
