Muzi is a mild mannered accounting student at a Johannesburg college. The son of a famous township pantsula dancer, he promised his mother to give up dancing after his father was murdered years ago at a street dance What Muzi doesn't know is that his father's death was not as everyone believed it to be.
When his father's former dance partner approaches Muzi to join his crew, "Sbujwa Nation", Muzi has to choose between finding out the truth about his father's death or disappointing his mother. What he doesn't realize is that by joining "Sbujwa Nation", he will make himself mortal enemies with Prince, the former leader of "Sbujwa Nation" who starts his own rival dance crew called "Ambi$hN".
Muzi finds that fitting into a crew isn't as easy as he thought it was. After years and years of being a solo dancer, he has to learn to work within a team.
Meanwhile, Prince is garnering support throughout the dance community by upstaging "Sbujwa Nation" whenever he can and making "Ambi$hn" a household name. He becomes an overnight success when he espouses the skhotane values of lavish living and splashing money, garnering a lot of support ahead of the big dance competition that everyone is working towards, named "Hear ME Move."
Muzi has to dig deep and come up with something that the crowds have never seen before, while at the same time fighting to keep the crew together in the face of backstabbing, jealousy and his budding romance with Khanyi, the stunningly beautiful girl in "Sbujwa Nation" and Muzi's school mate in college. Eventually he finds an old VHS tape that his father left him before he died, and that proves to be the game changer. Directed by Scottnes L. Smith, 2015. South Africa. Drama. 103 min. English.
