This film features the extraordinary life story of Professor Musa Manzi, told to encourage and inspire those searching for wisdom on how to live a full life in the midst of the Covid-19 Pandemic.
Born into a large family from a disadvantaged rural community, rejected by his father and bullied by his peers, Musa Manzi had the odds stacked against him in life. Yet he showed enormous resilience to become the first black South African to graduate with a PhD in Geophysics.
The journey was not easy. Overcoming the pitfalls of a rural and under-resourced basic education, Manzi made the bold move to seek a university education far from home. But the battle was not yet won. Facing family tragedies, mental health battles, and homelessness, this film shows how this man steadfastly prevailed to reach his full potential and become Doctor Musa Manzi.
