 Hopeville tells the story of Amos, a reformed alcoholic on a mission to forge a relationship with his son Themba. When both arrive in the dusty town of Hopeville, they discover a community with a long history of hate, corruption, fear and apathy. Through patience, determination and above all courage, Amos will strive to turn things around for himself, his son and his new community.
