    Born in a South Africa divided by racism and hatred, this one small boy will come to lead all the tribes of Africa. Through enduring friendships with Hymie and Gideon, Peekay gains the strength he needs to win out. And in a final conflict with his childhood enemy, the Judge, Peekay will fight to the death for justice.

    the movie makes a mockery of this exquisite fable.

    just beautiful. never has a story been more relevant and a message more needed. first with the head, then with the heart.
