Synopsis

Out of the destruction, chaos and trauma of the recent xenophobic violence a small group of Zimbabwean teachers tries to establish some structure and healing for the displaced children and for themselves. Their approach – the establishment of the Good Hope School, situated in a double-decker bus at the Rand Airport Displacement Camp. Some routine begins to emerge against the backdrop of a cramped and under-resourced environment. Even though there’s no quick fix for the underlying trauma and pain experienced, the resilience and dignity of the human spirit is described by this story, told through the eyes of the children. The madness of random hate is breathtakingly obvious through the film, without a single image of physical violence.
