The hoboStreaming Video - 1980 | Afrikaans
Two hobos were once each extraordinary men until life's tribulations tragically tripped them both up. Dumasani used to be a renowned professional boxer, but after losing an important match, he fell into a downward spiral of depression and alcohol abuse, until ultimately landing up on the streets. Similarly, Jabulani used to be a great detective with numerous successful cases to his name, but after losing his wife and family through a nasty divorce, he too found solace at the bottom of a bottle and woke up one day to find himself homeless on the streets. When the pair are approached by Pretty, a friend from Jabulani's past, offering them a handsome reward to get to the bottom of her husband's murder, they finally see a way to improve their lot in life. The pair soon discover that the husband was into some dodgy dealings, and was most likely killed by his drug-dealing partners. It is then that Pretty reveals her true colours, and steals the confiscated drugs the hobo friends recovered, but Jabulani brings his past detective skills to the table and they manage to get their own back at Pretty.
