Lucky is an AIDS orphan desperate to leave his rural Zulu village in South Africa for the bright lights of Durban, and also to get an education there. He is full of excitement and hope but Lucky has to learn about life the hard way, not through school or education but through an unlikely bond with a prejudiced Indian elderly women.
