A compilation of three student films from AFDA, including the ambitious “Home sweet home” by Norman Maake. After returning home from the United States, a young woman finds that her father, a former freedom fighter, is now a big time gangster. In addition, her younger brother has also become involved, though he is in conflict with his father. It is a situation in which everything possible goes wrong and, not surprisingly, it ends in tragedy. This is followed by Tyron Janse van Vuuren’s “Requiem for broken toys”, in which the setting is a forgotten corner of a barn or attic, where a few discarded toys come to life and recall their time with their one-time owners, who appear as ghostly memories. It won the 2001 Avanti Award for Animation. In Danie Bester’s “Skitterwit” a man becomes a victim of an attempted hijacking, but manages to turn the tables on his assailants. However, the assault has unsettled him and will influence his career as a professional hunter. In the meantime one of the young hijackers has also been affected and has decided to turn his life around.
