Legend has it that a Khoisan Princess living on the Cape Flats in the early days of European exploration, was violated by sailors. She fled to the mountain fortress of Elephant's Eye cave and wept so much that her tears formed Princess Vlei. Today, local communities are fighting against inappropriate commercial development that threatens the natural beauty, recreational value and spiritual heritage of this traditional commonage. The story is told from the different perspectives of: Emile, a rap artist and community activist; Kelvin, a local businessman and green revolutionary; and Nikita, a youth leader and budding conservationist.
