Wah-Wah synopsis

Ralph Compton (Nicholas Hoult), a youth in Swaziland, witnesses the disintegration of his dysfunctional family, as Britain's rule in South Africa comes to an end. His father's (Gabriel Byrne) heavy drinking increasingly alienates Ralph and his stepmother (Emily Watson), so the teen's mother (Miranda Richardson) -- who left long ago -- returns to reclaim her family.
