Apartheid South Africa: In the community of Railway—attached to the remote town of Marseilles—are the victims of brutal police oppression and only the young “Five Fingers” are willing to stand up to it. Their battle is heartfelt but innocent, until hot-headed Tau kills two policemen in an act of passion. He flees, leaving his brothers and friends behind, but his action has triggered a violent fight that will leave both Marseilles and the Five Fingers changed. Twenty years after fleeing in disgrace, Tau returns to Marseilles, seeking only a peaceful pastoral life. When he finds the town under new threat, he must reluctantly fight to free it. Will the Five Fingers ride again? Five Fingers for Marseilles fuses western influences, from classic to spaghetti and revisionist eras, into a contemporary, edge-of-the-seat South African drama. In Sesotho, Afrikaans, and Xhosa with English subtitles.
