Synopsis: ‘Angola’ is a story of a generation of committed cadres who envisioned a society that is free from all kind of slavery and oppression. Zakhele, Majoro, Mavuso together with a generation of their time, defied apartheid and left the country to join the arms struggle in Angola. Their mission was to attain freedom. In the midst of their revolutionary route, the enemy agent infiltrated them and they all lost one important aspect of the revolution, “Trust”.
In the process, they began to betray one another and the betrayal led to numerous killings turning their camp into a war zone. Majoro and Mavuso killed Zakhele and Zakhele’s son (Sipho) came in to avenge the death of his father. But he fell in-love with Thulisile (Majoro’s daughter) and that made him lose focus, which is something that further landed him in hot water. When Majoro heard that Sipho impregnated Thulisile, he targeted him and all hell broke loose. While they were busy planning to kill Sipho, the unexpected visitor (Thembi) came in, her presence instigated tension at the camp and it derailed the plan to kill Sipho. Thembi revealed shocking confessions that left everyone in a sombre state. 
‘Angola’ is voiced through drama, music and dance. It is a story that celebrates numerous people who left everything in their quest liberation and are not found in any historical books. It honours the lives of those who died in camps across the continent. ‘Angola’ dealing with corruption, greed, betrayal, love, sacrifice, redemption, politics and power will leave you shocked by all events that took place in those camps.
