This funny, moving and completely authentic slice-of-life tells the story of how one bullet irrevocably changes the course of five characters who live on the Cape Flats.  Lee-Ann van leads a cast of incredible young talents (Dustin Beck, Dean John Smith, Lyndsey Abrahams and Shannon Williams) in showing us the almost impossible odds against which young people (the kinnes of the title) have to struggle to make something of themselves in an area where violence, drugs and easy money are the holy trinity.   This award-winning script is written in perfect Cape vernacular and youngsters who dream of becoming doctors, actors and poets quickly realise that the Cape Flats has a way of crushing those dreams in the cruellest of ways.

 

Anwaar kry ‘n taste van fame wanneer hy ‘n gangster in ‘n fliek speel, maar hoeveel daarvan is acting? En wat maak mens as die fame opdroog?
Nicole vaar goed op skool en wil ‘n sukses van haar lewe maak, maar eerste liefde is ‘n harde leermeester. Derick wil poetry skryf, want woorde maak sy kop stil, maar woorde betaal nie die bills nie. Mary kyk uit vir haar kind, hy’s immers al wat sy het. En wanneer hy ‘n flatscreen koop en vibracrete-mure om die huis laat sit, vra sy nie waar die geld vandaan kom nie. Rolanda wil ‘n Cape Kardashian wees, haar flat iron in haar sak. Maar die Cape Flats is hard op drome en real life beteken jy moet doen wat jy kan om te survive.
