Rough aunties are a group of fearless, feisty and resolute women who protect and care for abused, neglected and forgotten children in Durban, South Africa. The documentary shows five women from the Bobbie Bear non-profit organisation as they wage their daily battles against systemic apathy, corruption, and greed to help the most vulnerable and disenfranchised of their communities. Neither politics, nor social or racial divisions stand a chance against the united force of these women. The film is an intimate portrait of change in post-apartheid South Africa, a nation being transformed with hope and energy into a new democracy.
