Unforeseeable future

Group of friends from a simple community who persuade each other to live a modern day lifestyle. Character named Snitch played by Mxolisi Makhubela, is influential and tries by all means to persuade his friends to fulfill his own desires. He's very talkative and talks about everything, he always undermines his friends who decided to live a Christian lifestyle, so he deviates their attention away from their belief. It takes place in a small area called Ekangala. It is a story of a love triangle whereby the opening scene is about Innocent who is warned in a dream to stop searching for love in wrong places, which later in the story resembles the fact that he must also change his ways and focus on the greater influence other than earthly desires. At the end all friends will change Snitch's perspective of life in general. Pretty is a female character who is in a relationship with Innocent but as a result she will leave him and pursue greener pastures, meaning get a new boyfriend, and her friend Rato is in a stable relationship with Volly who is a friend to Snitch and he's also a Christian and does not believe in multiple relationships. Ntindos a famous and well known guy who takes advantage of his fame to score himself a girlfriend which is Pretty who was currently in a relationship with Innocent. The film also shows a vivid picture of what was trending, the issues with blessers (young girls being in relationships with older men) and it was shot and edited on an iPad.
