21-year-old Afro-hipster and artist Ayanda (Fulu Mugovhani) is the child of a Nigerian father and a South African mother. Since the death of her mechanic father, she’s been thrown into a world of greasy overalls, gender stereotypes and abandoned cars as she struggles to keep his dwindling garage business afloat. When her uncle announces that the garage is to be sold, Ayanda sees the tangible connection to her beloved father start to fade, and so with the help of her boyfriend David (OC Ukeje) embarks on a new business venture, refurbishing old vintage cars for resale in a bid to save the garage. Ayanda’s own freewheeling inventiveness is an allegory for a modern South Africa in transition, where communities are diverse, ideas flow, and where women have a voice.
