One is a young precocious black male whose mother has recently passed away leaving him in financial turmoil. His stepfather promptly leaves him and he has no other family members. There have been a string of burglaries in his affluent neighbourhood but the burglars have only been identified as black males. So One devises a plan to impersonate these burglars and rob his neighbours, so everyone will assume it’s the actual burglars and never suspect it’s a bunch of high school kids. Two is One’s best friend and source of his problems. Two at his young age has become accustomed to gambling, drinking and escorts. His parents are absent and use to fuel his habits but of late can’t afford his tastes. So Two gets a loan from a gangster, which he subsequently cannot pay back. Thus now he enlists One’s help to get him out of it. Three is a headstrong young pretty black girl. She wants to become the new superstar of South Africa like Bonang but doesn’t have the commitment or talent to do so. Knowing full well she isn’t talented she comes off as very defensive, rude and impatient. She joins the group because her family is going through bankruptcy and the bank wants to repossess the house and cars. Four is a young clever white girl who is an orphan. She lives in a small house with 8 other foster brothers and sisters. Her goal in life is to become an English Literature professor but she understands that her foster parents won’t be able to pay for tertiary education and the South African government sees her as previously advantaged so will not subsidize her education. Five is a young coloured male who is socially inept and has no friends. His desperation isn’t financial but that he has no one except his family. Since he has a lot of time to himself he has become a geek and uses his time building models of Trains, Planes, film memorabilia. He joins the group to find acceptance and friends.
