FULL DESCRIPTION

This second feature from director Jenna Bass, who won best film at DIFF in 2016, tells the story of four friends who go on a camping trip to an isolated farm in South Africa's Northern Cape. The farm is owned by Lexi's (Francesca Michel) family, and she's invited her two best friends, the politically radical Xoli (Qondiswa James) and the happy-go-lucky Tatiana (Liza Scholtz). Without telling the others, she has also invited a new male friend, Thami (Nala Khumalo), whose chauvinistic attitude immediately puts the three young women on edge. As the sun bakes down on their campsite, the friends do their best to get along and survive the weekend together. But the next morning when they wake up, all four of them have swapped bodies. Their reactions vary from horror to disgust to glee, but one thing is agreed: they can't go home like this. They'll just have to get along long enough to find a solution. But tensions mount swiftly as conflicts from the past return in force, and things that have been left unsaid are suddenly blurted out. The stage is set for comedy to turn to tragedy, as the fantasy of the Rainbow Nation becomes a painful awakening.
