Skyline

A young girl’s coming of age as she meets and befriends African refugees who have fled war and economic ruin in search of peace life in a newly democratic South Africa. Set in Long Street Cape Town. Poignant, beautiful, evocative.

A run-down block of flats in central Cape Town, home to refugees and illegal immigrants, becomes a young girl’s gallery of self-discovery in this moving story of the emotional carnage caused by Africa’s civil wars. Drug dealers from Nigeria, Zimbabwean wire-workers, immigrants from Rwanda and Sudan, a Mozambican refugee – all seeking the peace of a newly democratic South Africa – bear down on her fragile world, then scoop her up into theirs. Skyline is an unflinching look at one girl’s coming of age in the colourful and violent streets of a city waking up to the rest of Africa.
