To celebrate the 10 years anniversary of the abolotion of Apartheid in South Africa, the Internationals decided to tour the townships of Johannesburg and Cape Town, poor suburbs usualy deprived from cultural activities. During this tour Junior Mthombeni, son of an ANC refugee and a Belgian mother, interviewed many icons of the Southafrican music scene. This documentary is a tribute to the musical and cultural diversity of South Africa and shows how music made a difference in the years of Apartheid and how it has evolved since its abolition.
