South African comedian Trevor Noah uses his experiences as the child of a racially mixed couple during Apartheid--a time when interracial relationships were forbidden--as the lens for his sidesplitting comedy. In this intimate portrait, we meet an anxious Trevor as he is about to step onto the stage for his first ever one-man show.
Trevor faces a multitude of challenges: an underdeveloped comedy scene, criticism from other comics, lingering racial tension, and a shocking family tragedy. They pose a serious threat to the success of the show and to Trevor's dream of performing on the global stage.
Prodigious, audacious, acerbic, hilarious--there are many words to describe Trevor Noah, and this funny yet insightful documentary from first-time director David Paul Meyer does it best.
