Award-winning Hendricks returns with this carefully observed study of a Hout Bay fisherman as he engages with his friends over the course of a dagga-fueled conversation, making dinner and putting his children to bed.

As in previous work, Hendricks gains remarkable access to his subject, achieving a level of intimacy rare in documentary filmmaking.

In providing such a personal portrait of a single household, and allowing the rich dialogue between the men to flow so freely, he provides a tangible account of how the economic policies of neoliberalism and post-apartheid South Africa have constrained the lives and livelihoods of the poor in this country and around the world.
