This is the story of two brothers from the forgotten community of Atlantis, 40 km outside of Cape Town. A place with one of the highest rates of violence against women and children in the world. The documentary follows the brothers' struggle to change the ugly, public face of Atlantis and to prove that there are good men living there. After many failed ideas they decide to carry a woman on a stretcher from Cape Point to Atlantis covering a distance of 150 km in order to raise funds and awareness for the only shelter for abused women and children in the community. It is a story of their physical feat and the extraordinary way in which they achieved it.
