Anwar's pregnant American-born wife wants to know what happened to her husband. A reluctant CIA agent begins to question his assignment after witnessing an unorthodox interrogation.

Il suo nome è Tsotsi( Visual )

L’adolescente Tsotsi e la sua banda muovono dal ghetto di Soweto – un milione di abitanti stipati alla periferia di Johannesburg – verso la città dei grattacieli, per le loro rapine e furti quotidiani. La vittima designata è un uomo di colore che, borseggiato nel metrò, accenna a una reazione: Butcher, uno dei complici di Tsostsi, lo uccide senza pietà. Boston è l’unico della banda a ribellarsi, in nome della dignità, a questa esecuzione inutile; per tutta risposta, Tsotsi lo picchia ferocemente, per poi fuggire da solo, nella notte di pioggia battente. Davanti a una villa elegante, Tsotsi ruba una macchina, senza accorgersi che sul sedile posteriore c’è un bambino di pochi mesi. Dopo qualche esitazione, Tsotsi prende il bambino con sé. È l’inizio di un percorso di redenzione. Osservando il piccolo – a cui Tsotsi darà il suo vero nome, David – il ragazzo ritorna con la memoria ai momenti più duri della sua infanzia (la madre malata, il padre estraneo e violento), e s’interessa, forse per la prima volta, alla sorte di qualcuno più sfortunato di lui, un barbone paralizzato incontrato in metropolitana. Poi, non sapendo come nutrire il bambino, Tsotsi costringe una ragazza madre ad allattarlo; e con lei intreccia una goffa quanto inedita amicizia. Il ragazzo decide poi di tornare a casa dei genitori del bambino per tentare una rapina; in realtà, quello che vuole è vedere la camera del piccolo e prendere alcuni dei suoi giocattoli. Il padre del bambino però reagisce male; e per evitare che Butcher gli spari, Tsotsi è costretto a sparare a sua volta, uccidendo il suo compagno. Tornato a casa, ormai abbandonato da tutti i membri della sua banda, Tsotsi cerca di recuperare l’amicizia di Boston, curando le ferite che lui stesso gli ha inferto e offrendosi di pagargli la fine degli studi per diventare maestro. Alla fine, Tsotsi si rende conto di dover restituire il bambino alla sua famiglia: e nell’arrendersi alla polizia c’è forse, per lui, l’inizio di una nuova vita
