Synopsis

This is a portrait of a group of working men in post-apartheid South Africa. It shows men who take great pride in putting on flashy suit to stand out as inspiration for others. The film tells their story and why the “dressing up” is not just something external and temporary, but an integrated part of their internal spiritual and mental life, their past, present and future.
