Across the city of Cape Town, a sex-line operator, a dog handler, a love-sick IT-technician and a lonely teenager begin to suspect that their romantic relationships are the subject of a bizarre conspiracy, involving their friends, family and possibly even greater forces. These star-crossed stories question the ideals we often hold too sacred: love, happiness, and the New South Africa, the pursuit of which makes truth impossible. Kaleidoscopic, original and entirely improvised, Jenna Bass's acclaimed debut feature hails a new generation of South African cinema.
