Drafted during Apartheid by the South African Army, Johan Niemand must set aside his love for Boy George and Depeche Mode in favour of more โ€˜godlyโ€™ music in order to land himself a spot in the SADF Choir - the โ€˜Canaries.โ€™ In a landscape where law and religion oppress individuality, Johan and the Canaries have to survive military training and go on a nationwide tour. An unexpected romance on the battlefield forces Johan to reckon with his long-repressed sexual identity. This musical comedy revels in the discovery of finding your voice and learning to fly.
