Synopsis: Fatherless and under challenging living conditions, Tshidiso, Venter and Seipati are coming of age in a South African township. With his dance group TAXIDO, Jerry is keeping the youngsters away from the street. Wherever they perform, they are met with thunderous applause. Suddenly, there is hope of a dance career, of work, and of a better future. However, back in their huts a daily struggle of hardship prevails. Twenty years after the end of apartheid, ‘Life In Progress’ offers a unique insight into the lives of three teenagers living in the run-down township called Katlehong.
