Ethan could have ended up like many others who have dropped out of school and become homeless. Just like the roughly 40% of teenagers who face this fate in South Africa, according to statistics. Instead, he decided to try to be different. He started skateboarding and writing his own rap music. The inspiring film was created to open up opportunities for young people to work in creative professions that are still underdeveloped in South Africa.
