Synopsis

South Africa has a long and complex history. The legacy of colonialism and apartheid hang over it like dark clouds and, despite the avalanche of hope its liberation brought in 1994, there persists a negative narrative about the country that is difficult to shake. This is not helped by the fact that South Africans are statistically the most pessimistic people on earth!

Of course the country faces many troubling issues. Good Hope not only identifies the key problems but also offers the solutions, highlighting the work of the next generation of leaders, entrepreneurs and thinkers currently grappling with these challenges. The thirty-six, dynamic South Africans featured in the film are a colossal source of inspiration - not just for South Africa, but for the world.

We all need hope.
