The film takes an unflinching look at the #FeesMustFall student movement in the South African political landscape during the 2015 protest against the cost of education. These youths have reached breaking point and will not back down until they have achieved a social transformation the previous generations have given up on.

The story is told by four student leaders at Wits University and their Vice Chancellor, Adam Habib, a left-wing, former anti-apartheid student activist. When Habib’s efforts to contain the protest fail, he brings 1000 police on to campus. There were dire consequences for the young leaders. By blending dramatic unfolding action with a multi-protagonist narrative, much of the drama lies in the internal struggles the activists have around the weight of leadership.

Mendekati pergerakan pelajar #FeeMustFall, sebuah protes ke atas kos pendidikan yang menggegarkan dunia politik Afrika Selatan pada 2015. Kisah ini diceritakan oleh empat pemimpin pelajar dari Wits University dan Naib Canselor mereka, Adam Habib, bekas aktivis pelajar anti-apartheid berhaluan kiri. Apabila usaha Habib menghalang protes tersebut gagal, beliau membawa masuk 1000 orang polis ke dalam kampus. Akibat yang serius menanti pemimpin-pemimpin muda ini. Dengan menggabungkan aksi dramatik dan naratif berbilang protagonis, kebanyakan drama melingkari konflik dalaman aktivis sebagai pemimpin. Filem ini sarat dengan antisipasi melibatkan jurang generasi, di mana golongan mudanya sudah nekad dan tidak akan menyerah sehingga perubahan yang dilupakan generasi terdahulu berjaya dicapai.
