WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

In a beachfront guest lodge on the jagged edge of the South African diamond coast, we find Thami, the black caretaker, and Johan, a white ex-cop who lives at the lodge, gunning for one last chance at a better life. When Smith, a wealthy businessman, arrives at the lodge on a foggy evening, the two desperate friends see Smith as the perfect investor for their "get-rich" scheme to buy a government-run diamond concession -- tossing a glimmer of hope and promise into their difficult lives. But as the evening wears on, the darker side of their dreams and aspirations is fueled by greed, danger and entitlement from the uneasy history they share. This haunting psychological thriller hungers, hopes and promises for a just post-apartheid society, while asking: How do we live together after apartheid? Where did all the promise and hope go? Who bears responsibility for the sins of the past, and can we move beyond it?
