‘Canary’ Johan Niemand, at the age of 18 in 1986 South Africa, is accepted to the SADF Choir called the ‘Canaries’. Against a landscape where law and religion oppress individuality, Johan and Canaries have to survive military training. What is the training? Travelling from town to town. Entertaining people. Fortifying the belief in the military effort. Above all, promoting the cause of both Church and State.
