Having escaped starvation and tyranny in their homeland of Zimbabwe, four friends have conquered the odds to become South Africa’s top sommeliers. Driven by relentless optimism, a passion for their craft and an ingrained sense of national pride, they form Zimbabwe’s first national wine tasting team and set their sights on the coveted title of ‘World Wine Tasting Champions’. When this team of mavericks finally arrives in France to compete, they successfully turn an establishment of privilege and tradition on its head.
A truly heart-warming documentary that will show you just how unshakable the human spirit can be.
