Though political conditions in South Africa have changed, the economic realities are still difficult. Zulu laborers who migrate to Cape Town or Johannesburg often find themselves living in hostels while searching for jobs. This film concentrates on Bethwel Mlongo, a singer and guitarist, and three members of his band, Ubuhle Bembali (The Beauty of Flowers) as they prepare for a musical competition among the Zulus. Through songs and dances which Mlongo has composed and choreographed, the group performs the tale of their lives to a cheering crowd. Marc Glassman.
