This documentary tells the story of the 1980 student boycott in the Western Cape. Laddie Bosch, an ex-student of Spes Bona High, starts his story: "I was born in 1964...but it was in 1980 that I became a person." The film takes us through the images and events that featured in the lives of high school students in that year, culminating in the murder of Bernard Fortuin, the first person killed by police in the Western Cape in 1980. A highly organised student body was formed called "Committee of 81", and members of this underground committee tell of the adventure, excitement and sadness during this school student revolt. Despite the hardships and losses endured, the film celebrates the youthful spirit of the 80s and the solidarity shared amongst students at that time.
