When mysterious tech giant, FUTURECOM, brings jobs and the promise of prosperity to a forgotten African mining town, young THABO and his friends find their imaginative superpowers make them the only ones who can battle a terrifying new god-like technology, THE GUUG, and those under this monster’s influence — including Thabo’s own brother, SIYA.

This feature film proof-of-concept taps into the true power and importance of creativity, bravery, believing in one’s inner voice, and forgiveness.
