Lucky

Sometimes luck has to be found
  • I don't feel so lucky today...

A 10-year-old rural boy (Lucky) loses his mother to Aids. He travels from his remote Zulu village to the city of Durban, hoping to go to school and make something of himself. But his selfish, dishonest uncle stonewalls him. He strays into the home of an elderly Indian woman, The two do not understand each other's language and she makes no bones about her innate distrust of black people. Eventually, she takes him in as she would a stray dog, so that she can claim the government child grant. When his scheming uncle finds out, he yanks him out of school, steals the grant money and assaults the woman. She manages to rescue Lucky and take him back to his rural Zulu village. The village residents are, at the very least, indifferent to Lucky's return. There's no place for him there, now. There is a glimmer of hope, however, when they learn that Lucky's father may still be alive. Together they go on an emotional journey to see if this man will take Lucky in. They develop an unlikely and unique bond, which leads to a potentially promising and unexpected future. In Zulu, Hindi and English with subtitles.
