Darrell James movie-version of Sarafina! is very much alike the show. The movie became the biggest film production to be released in the African continent.

Her father gave her that name bacause he thought that everything was better yesteday. It’s a very moving movie, I’ve seen it myself. It’s about a young mother, Yesterday, who has discovered that she has got AIDS. Her husband, who originally gave her the disease, rejects her. Her ambition becomes to live long enough to see her daughter, Beauty, go to school.
