Rachel, a Mozambican domestic worker living in Johannesburg, is forced to make a life-changing decision after her daughter tragically dies whilst under the care of her employers; return to poverty stricken Mozambique or continue working for the people responsible for the death of her child. Things become even more complicated when she finds out that her employers are expecting their first child.Written by

This went almost un-noticed.... even my trusted #2DVDforR100 specials at Musica only listed this briefly under Afrikaans titles whereas Afrikaans is only aboy 25% of the dialogue.... This is a masterclass in film-making, I love the very very effective and touching effect of telling 2 stories side by side.... This is a low budget movie but it is pure quality and Shoki Mokgapa (of the brilliant SABC3 tv drama called "The Lab") just carries this brilliantly.... This rates along "Tsotsi" and "Yesterday" and succeeds where "Cry, The Beloved Country" absolutely failed.... soo sooo explores the issues plaguing the so-called "Rainbow Nation".. There is an underlying Christian message also that is masked seamlessly
