Synopsis
Coming Of Age is a film that follows teenagers over two years as they grow up deep in the southern African mountain kingdom of Lesotho. Very little happens in their Ha Sekake village, but from their perspective, a lot is at stake. Lefa, who wears her heart on her sleeve, sees her world fall apart when her best friend Senate leaves the village. She too must decide whether to stay or leave in search of a better education and new opportunities. Retabile takes care of the family’s livestock up in a remote cattle post, for eight months of the year, helped by his younger brother Mosaku. He watches as the elder brother goes through a rite of passage into adulthood. The summer of youth is quickly over, doors into adulthood open and close.
