13-year-old Felix Xaba dreams of becoming a saxophonist like his late father, but his mother Lindiwe thinks jazz is the devil’s music. When Felix leaves his township friends to take up a scholarship at an elitist private school, he defies his mother and turns to two aging members of his father’s old band, the Bozza Boys, to help him prepare for the school jazz concert. His dream is to become “king of the sax”, like his late father.
