Abstract:Thamza, Mazwi and Sjwi are street thugs in the townships surrounding Cape Town and partners in crime. One day they are about to rape a school girl but Sjwi feels guilty and sets her free. Soon after, he is stabbed in the neck during a fight and his life is hanging onto a thread. Will he come to realize the power of 'umthandazo' (the prayer) at last and become a born again Christian?
