“The scenes that follow the theft of cash in transit gone wrong provide a menacing and gripping glimpse into the short limited series written and directed by Kgosana Monchusi, Juvais Dunn and Menzi Mzimela,” a statement read.

Speaking of the visuals, Dunn says their main goal was to create an entertaining series in a new format that conveys a “powerful message about certain social issues in our country.”

The nine-part series provides insight into the issue of gender-based violence and asks how far victims must go to be heard and protected. It follows Grace, a married township nurse who feels both trapped and out of breath because of her abusive husband, who has made her life a living hell; however, as she decides to end her life, her house is stormed by two runaway thugs who take her hostage.

Ahead of the first international premiere, writer, director and editor Menzi Mzimela says it’s a great opportunity to showcase honest work that touches on universal elements the world can resonate with.

“It’s also a great test for foreign filmmakers to create stories that can travel without diluting their culture and changing their language.”
