FULL DESCRIPTION

An enigmatic drama portraying the cycle of violence in a small South African town, in which a young waitress welcomes her husband home after his four-year jail sentence. At first it appears their plans for a new life together are finally being realized, but when the family of a foreigner living on a nearby farm is brutally murdered, the young woman and the grieving widower begin gravitating towards each other. Their unlikely friendship serves to expose the tensions between the community and local authorities, drawing attention to heated politics such as police corruption and the unequal treatment of races.
