Synopsis

On the edges of Johannesburg, Tsotsi's life has no meaning beyond survival. One night in desperation, Tsotsi steals a woman's car, only to discover a crying infant in the backseat. In a moment, his life takes a sharp turn and leads him down an unexpected path to redemption, giving him hope for a future he never could have imagined. Tsotsi is a portrait of the choices that are made in life and how compassion can endure in the human heart.
