Storyline

Quarrelling Cape Town lovers Hugh, and Kate, are on their way to their weekend "love shack" nestled high in the Cederberg when they pass a young young girl hitchhiking by the roadside. Katherine is suspicious of this beautiful stranger wearing tight denim "Daisy Duke" shorts but gives in to Hugh and they stop and give her a lift. Liza becomes quite reticent when asked about her personal affairs, but she does tell them that she's from "an alien planet" in "nowhere" enroute to their mountain getaway. Seeing she's hungry when they give her an apple, they invite her back to Katherine's home for lunch oblivious to the danger that they've brought into their lives. bcarruthers-76500

Trivia

The Cedarberg region of South Africa's Western Cape where this movie was filmed was named after the Clanwilliam cedar, which used to be abundant in the Cedarberg mountains, but are unfortunately a rare sight today. They are now a critically endangered species on the brink of extinction after decades of unsustainable harvesting for their beautiful, long lasting, fragrant timber. See more »

Horrifying
22 November 2018 | by carlyelviraroseSee all my reviews

This is possibly the worst movie I have ever seen. These people have serious boundary issues. You could tell from the first see through nipple shot on this girl's spaghetti strap that it was going to become a slow moving softcore adulterous wet t-shirt contest, and it was. Girls on the road don't even look like that. They have weird haircuts and smell like body odor. And their white clothes would definitely not be white. I regret the last hour and a half of my life. Actually I don't because I got to make fun of this movie the entire time. The only redeeming factor was the beautiful landscape but it was marred by these rich white polyamorous people who don't know how to climb a tiny hill. Was it supposed to be a comedy? 1 out of 10 would not recommend.
