An upbeat and powerful musical set amid the real events of student-led riots that took place in Soweto, South Africa in 1976. Growing up during the apartheid era, Sarafina is a determined young woman only too aware of the racial segregation in her country. Inspired by a teacher who dares to teach her students to dream and think for themselves, Sarafina encourages her classmates to rise up in protest against the introduction of Afrikaans as the main language in schools. Full of energy, the film does not shy away from showing the oppression or violence of the period while using dance and music to reveal the spirit of the students as they fight to be heard.
