Four South African teenagers with different origins, Zanele, Thabo, Meena and Jack, narrate the story of how Black students took to the street in 1976 to fight against racist laws. If you are like me, you will become attached to them - they are not necessarily likeable, and they have various motives for being involved with the uprising (during which the police eventually started shooting at children - let it be noted), but they are complex and interesting characters.
