Director Seedat’s powerful film offers a glimpse into the annual mock trial contest held for human rights law students from top universities across Africa. The film showcases the passion and determination of these bright young students as they argue cases related to refugee law. Through their arguments, the film highlights the potential of Africa's future legal thought leaders and their role in shaping the continent's legal landscape. The cases presented are both challenging and inspiring, offering a window into the frustration and optimism of these students as they strive to win the competition. This is a thought-provoking and compelling film that sheds light on the importance of legal education and advocacy in Africa.
