One part ubuntu ('I am because you are'), one part Fame, and taking the xenophobic attacks of 2008 as its starting point, Cry of Love is an authentically African musical featuring the cream of local musical talent. Starring Yvonne Chaka Chaka, Leleti Khumalo, Victor Masondo and Luthuli Dlamini, the film celebrates the talent that is incubated in a fictitious school named the African Performing Arts Centre. Chaka Chaka's character takes centre stage as she guides a generation of young artists who flock to the centre through their trials and tribulations.
