Johannesburg  – From the producers of the widely-acclaimed movie Inside Story comes a new feature-length film, The Lucky Specials.

The film centres on a guitarist and his friends on their journey to create a new musical sound and catapult their small-time band to the big stage.

The Lucky Specials are a cover band in a dusty town in southern Africa. Mandla (Oros Mampofu, Skeem Saam) is a miner by day and plays lead guitar for The Lucky Specials by night. He dreams of making it big in the music industry. When tragedy strikes, the band, Mandla and their friend Nkanyiso (Sivenathi Mabuya) struggle to hold everything together.

The Lucky Specials is slated to entertain millions with its dynamic storyline, new brand of African music, and a unique look at tuberculosis.

Other cast members include: Blondie Makhene, Richard Lukunku (Thina Sobabili), Thomas Gumede (A Place Called Home) and Fulu Mugovhani (Ayanda) and Linda Sebezo (Gauteng Maboneng).
