A stunning a remote mountain retreat forms the backdrop of this engrossing and enthnographically insightful coming of age drama from South Africa. Each year, a group of boys are taken into the wilderness for a gruelling two week long ritual to initiate them into manhood. For one boy, the initiation also involves coming to terms with his sexuality and his attraction to one of the elders, which sparks growing tensions in this deeply traditional culture. The title of this boldly provocative drama is both metaphorical and physical, as the scars of a society still clinging to outdated notions of masculinity and patriarchy are laid bar
