This South African drama paints a dark portrait of life in Johannesburg, moving between three unrelated stories to consider different risks the city presents to newcomers. In one tale, a young man arrives from the countryside to retrieve the corpse of his recently deceased father, only to discover that the old man had kept a second family in town. Meanwhile, another young man comes to Johannesburg in search of work and gets sucked into the criminal underground. The third tale also concerns a young person looking for work, in this case a woman in charge of her young niece; her progress is stymied time and again by South Africa’s chauvinistic culture. This is an eye-opening social study, though never really satisfying in its storytelling; the tone is monotonously grim and the cast generally flat. Akin Omotoso directed. In Zulu with subtitles.
