THE WALL

Moses only wants one thing: to get home, out of the crippling South African heat, away from the godforsaken suburb where his old Toyota has just broken down. To get home to his girlfriend Sandi and a cold beer. The streets are empty, there’s not a single human being to be seen. Moses hopes to find help in a nearby gated community. Over there, in the white world, everything is in order. But once inside it he feels more of an outsider than ever. And he makes a mistake…
At the same time, Nozipho and Thembi are creeping around inside the walls – both make their living with burglary. What they can’t know is that in the house they plan to break into next a far more serious crime has already been committed …

A gripping psychological thriller set in South Africa
