The members of Tino La Musica, a Congolese band based in Cape Town, live and rehearse in a rundown block of flats until they are evicted just before the outbreak of xenophobic violence. The double impact of these events causes the band to fall apart, yet its members struggle to reunite and find the will to sing and dance again.
