In merely five years of being in the limelight, Koos du Plessis (1945–1984) irrevocably changed the landscape of Afrikaans music and lyrics. His work is timeless, appealing to a new generation of fans almost 40 years after his death. But who was this man? In the film, members of his family, fellow musicians, friends, journalists and contemporaries share their perspectives, enabling us to appreciate the man and his music through their eyes.
