Synopsis

13-year-old Felix Xaba dreams of becoming a saxophonist like his late father, but his mother Lindiwe thinks jazz is the devil’s music. When Felix leaves his township friends to take up a scholarship at an elitist private school, he defies his mother and turns to two aging members of his father’s old band to help him prepare for the school jazz concert. Felix is a family-friendly film of a deeply moving story about perseverance in pursuing dreams and developing one’s talent.

Directed by Roberta Durrant
