We are canaries not birds...
Set in 1985 against a backdrop of apartheid, religion, and the bush war, we follow a teen boy, who has always been bullied in his small town for his flair for British new wave music and love of Boy George. After he gets called up, he auditions for the Canaries (the South African Defence Force Church Choir and Concert Group), believing that the choir will be his ticket out of fighting the war. However he begins to see the role he plays in the oppression and injustice around him. On tour, he develops feelings for a fellow Canary and he starts to question everything he knows about himself, leading to a confrontation with his commanding officers. In Afrikaans language with English subtitles.
