Da vat hy boys

This local film takes a look at social issues via a very South Africa phenomenon: car guards. Our hero is a white dreamer and aspiring stand-up comedian in his late 20’s, still living with mom and dad. After yet another failed open mic performance he gets drunk and crashes his father’s car on the way home. This is the last straw for dad and his father kicks him out of the house. Having nowhere to go he becomes a carguard. After a very hostile reception by the other carguards, the eldest carguard decides to take Johnathan under his wing and teaches him the finer art of being a carguard, and more importantly he teaches Jonathan about life and how to survive as an outcast. Jonathan also falls in love with a girl way out of his league. Will he be able to apply the lessons learned to make peace with his family, earn the forgiveness of his mentor and win the heart of the most beautiful girl he ever met? In Afrikaans language with English subtitles.
