Insecure railway chef, Sonny Frank (Leon Schuster), and a ten year old rural boy, Fearless (Themba Ntuli), set out to kidnap the ambassador of a South-East Asian country (David Dennis) in an attempt to stop rhino slaughtering. They are joined on this mission by two four-legged friends; Reini, a baby rhino whose mother was killed by poachers and Fearless’ big and faithful black dog called Dog. When things go terribly wrong, they have no choice but to take on a platoon of merciless poachers, who are led by the terrifying ranger turned poacher, Dolf (Kenneth Nkosi), with whom Sonny has a past.
The motion picture was created by a dynamic team of experts, with acclaimed filmmaker Gray Hofmeyr (Jock of the Bushveld, Sweet and Short, There’s a Zulu On My Stoep) as director and André Scholtz and Menzi Thabede as producers. Schuster is absolutely brilliant in the lead role of this captivating and emotional story, which is unlike anything else previously produced by this legendary entertainer whose films, like Mr Bones and Mad Buddies, are some of the highest-grossing local productions with impressive international sales.
The star-studded cast, which includes Khanyi Mbau (Happiness is a Four Letter Word) and Jennifer Steyn (Goodbye Bafana, Madam and Eve) are also praised for their outstanding performances in this heart-warming movie; the stellar line-up also features cameos by Mary Twala, Alfred Nthombela, David Dennis, Annabel Linder, Camilla Waldren, Tiro Venter, Coco Merckel, Shelly Meskin, Reggie Ndlovu and Tebogo Selebogo.
