After the death of her grandmother, Tsidi (Chumisa Cosa) and her daughter are forced to move in with her estranged mother, Mavis (Nosipho Mtebe), who works as a live-in carer for her white ‘Madam’ in the wealthy Cape Town suburbs. As Tsidi reckons with past resentments and attempts to convince Mavis that she deserves better, the residue of past traumas begins to take hold, and she is faced with unimaginable terror. Echoing the horror of films like The Babadook, Jenna Cato Bass’s daring satire is a complex and searing look at the legacy left behind from the Apartheid era.
