Based on actual events, Malume’s Painting portrays the journey of a young Soweto student activist, who was exiled in 1976.Malume rekindles his relationship with his sister upon his return, whose family enjoys the fruits of democratic liberation after the falloff Apartheid and realizes how the new generation has been alienated from their history and heritage. A highly conscious and gifted artist,Malume uses his painting as an example to the children. He reflects on his experiences and relays the meaning of it's content to them. The story illustrates the humanity of freedom fighters and how their acts of kindness have changed lives and healed families.
