À l’âge de dix ans, Tembi et son frère de huit ans perdent leur maman. Leur tante vient pour s’occuper d’eux. Malheureusement, après avoir vendu toutes les possessions de la famille, elle abandonne les enfants qui n’arrivent à sauver qu’un petit tapis zoulou que leur mère avait fait avant de mourir. Prenant leur destin en main, Tembi convainc son jeune frère de partir pour la grande ville, Durban. Là-bas, ils se retrouvent abandonnés à eux-mêmes dans la terrifiante métropole. Le fort lien qui les unit se trouve menacé par ce monstre qui risque de vaincre nos deux jeunes protagonistes…

Ten year old Tembi and her eight year old brother, Kwezi, lose their mother. Their aunt is supposed to take care of them, but once she’s sold the few things they have, she disappears. The children are left with nothing but a traditional Zulu mat made by their mother before she died. Taking their destiny in her hands, Tembi convinces her brother that they should go to the big city of Durban. But once they arrive, they find themselves adrift in a terrifying metropolis. The very essence of Tembi and Kwezi’s bonds are threatened as the city becomes a monster that threatens to completely overwhelm and defeat our courageous youngsters…

My Secret Sky follows the journey of two young children as they travel from their rural village to the city after their mother’s death. Thembi aims to fulfill her mother’s dream, but it is only when she reaches out to her little brother that she begins to find her own dream.

FINLANDAIS
Orvoiksi jääneet veljekset Thembi, 10, ja Khwezi, 8, matkaavat maaseudulta Durbanin suurkaupunkiin. Mukanaan heillä on äidin punoma matto, koska kotikylässä vieraillut pappi oli rohkaisuut äitiä osallistumaan matolla käsityökilpailuun. Kun veljekset yrittävät Durbanissa löytää samaisen papin, he ajautuvat 12-vuotiaan kovanaaman Chili Biten johtamaan katulapsijengiin. Katuelämää lasten näkökulmasta tuoreesti lähestyvä elokuva vakuuttaa inhimillisyydellään ja loistavien lapsinäyttelijöiden voimin. Vaikka lasten elämä on vaaroja täynnä, elokuva luo toivoa paremmasta tulevaisuudesta.
