In 1991, the ANC suspended their armed struggle against the Apartheid government in South Africa. In 2009, the majority of former combatants are unemployed and still waiting for compensation promised to them. The film looks into the lives of a group of former combatants living in the Johannesburg township of Alexandra who have given up waiting and have decided to do something for themselves.
