Tsotsi (Chweneyagae) is an emotionally frozen street hoodlum punching and kicking his way round Soweto’s shanty towns. When a carjacking goes wrong and he finds himself lumbered with the baby of a wealthy couple, the child begins to thaw his damaged soul — bringing confusion, trouble, and the possibility of some kind of redemption…
With lively pacing, superb performances and a candid yet forgiving heart, Hood has created an inverse fairy tale that is never less than absorbing.
