In the movie, Xi and the rest of the indigenous, isolated tribesmen living in the Kalahari Desert are all contented and happy with their lives knowing that the Gods are providing them well with plenty of food. One day an airplane pilot flying overhead disposed his empty bottle of Coke. It landed near Xi who happened to be walking in the area. He picked up the bottle and brought it with him to his village.
Consulting with the Elders of his tribe, they agreed that the "Gift" has to be returned to the Gods for it gave them nothing but trouble. Xi was given the task of disposing the bottle by throwing it at the edge of the earth. Thus starts Xi's adventure, meeting diverse people and colliding with Western Civilization for the very first time.
Unfortunately, Nǃxau ǂToma died in July of 2003 at the age of 59. He returned to farming after his acting career, raising corn, beans and some cattle.
Did you know?
That Nǃxau ǂToma earned just $300.00 for his first movie The Gods Must Be Crazy. In his sequel movie, he earned a much higher income earning 800,000.00 South African Rand. He was raised in a culture that does not know monetary value and have no regard for material things that money can buy. He lived a very simple and modest life.
