Special Star – Feature Film (Musical)

Find Your Paradise


A reserved and submissive medical student who dreams of being a musician but whose domineering mother forbids her to, finds out her terminally ill grandfather wants her to inherit his dilapidated jazz/dance club, Paradise, so she can restore it to its former glory.​


Special Star is a musical romantic comedy-drama about pursuing one’s dreams and standing up for what you believe in. Built around the extensive, vibrant and joyous Mango Groove song catalogue, and filled with unforgettable and lavish dance sequences, Special Star is the story of a group of South Africans, comprised of various ages and ethnicities, and how they all deal with their dreams of a better future for themselves and their families.
