Nothing for Mahala
Where did it all go wrong?
Almost a chain gang.
The team behind TV's Soul City have produced this 'educational' comedy to help adjust peoples' attitudes to money. An up-and-coming property agent is desperate to make his mark in life and believes you have to spend money in order to make it. The only problem is that he is spending a lot more than he is making, driving the flashy car and trying to outdo the neighbours. This extravagant lifestyle gets him into trouble with loan sharks and, through a series of mishaps, in trouble with the law. He gets sentenced to 200 hours of community service at an old-age home. There he meets a grumpy old man who spent his life chasing money and now finds himself miserable and alone. Their story is a comic clash of cultures spiced up with hard-hitting life lessons. There's also a chance for love with a woman who has a totally different value system.

|Comments||The movie contains positive resolutions, i.e. there is more to life than wealth and money. The sheer positive resolution that comes out of the movie is reconciliation. When Xolile learns this lesson from Hendrick, i.e. that there's money [sic] he launches a campaign of epic proportions, to save the old age home. He also begins to pursue altruistic virtues, e.g. he facilitates the reconciliation between Hendrick and his estranged daughter.|
