Everyone in Jurassic Park, on the Cape Flats, knows Anwaar ‘Ahnie’ Brandt since he was an extra in the GangStar movie. But as the boss of the Butcher Boys he has bigger plans. Derick leaves school to find a job when Nicole falls pregnant. Rolanda wants to live her best life as a Cape Kardashian. With the odds stacked against them – will these dreams be stifled and trapped in a perpetuating cycle? The story of four characters on the brink of adulthood somewhere along the Cape Flats.
